Martensville Tuff Run raises funds for new ice surface

Martensville Community Recreation Project (MCRP) volunteers are taking a run at a new way of raising funds for a second indoor ice surface.
The “2017 Tuff Run” is a family-oriented event slated for Sunday, August 27, according to MCRP President Jesse Reis. The goal is to add money to the gradually-increasing pot that will eventually go toward a new or expanded facility in the city.
