Bear Water Run

The White Bear Lake (WBL) Lions Club has held the Bear Water Run event annually to raise funds that support the club’s long-standing work where proceeds are returned to the WBL community.

Bear Water Run was started in 2000 by creating this event in search of new fundraising ideas. Some club members were runners at the time thereby developing a running race event to take advantage of the beautiful lake which is central to the community. Bear Water Run has turned into the most profitable event the club performs, and proceeds are put to great use every year.  Many runners share that the Bear Water Run is their favorite race of the year. The Club proudly serves this event to support the WBL community.
