Speed For Need will help feed Langley’s hungry

Roughly 100 people took a turn around Langley’s indoor racing track Dec. 1, in exchange for donations to charity

Roughly 100 amateur racers satisfied their need for speed Thursday night, which, in turn, made Speed For Need a roaring success.

Fast Track Indoor Karting Inc. on Production Way in Langley City held its annual food-and-fundraiser Dec. 1.

Visitors were offered a race around the track in exchange for either a cash donation or non-perishable food donations.

All donations will go to the Langley Christmas Bureau and Sources Langley Food Bank.

Fast Track sales rep Jose Perez said there was a generous amount of food donations —with non-perishables filling a large bin — as well as some cash donations during the event.

“The night went well,” Perez said. “There is a lot of people in need at Christmas time so anytime you can help the community, it’s a bonus.”
