A few years ago John and I participated in numerous fundraising runs around town, from the Run for Light (a personal fave) to the Science Fair Fun Run and the Run for the Cure. We know Vancouver is a city for runners so it’s no wonder that many more fun runs and fundraisers are popping up this season.
Here’s a quick rundown of events currently on my radar and feel free to add any others you might know of or would like to promote.
When: April 25, 2009
Where: Second Beach, Stanley Park
Distance: 1 km, 3 km or 5 km walk route, all wheelchair/scooter accessible & inline skaters are also welcome
Benefiting: MS Society of Canada, Kulpreet Singh also has a campaign.
Science Fair Fun Run
Location: Science World
When: May 31, 2009
Distance: 5km run or walk & 1km mini fun run
Benefiting: The Dr. Michael Smith Science Fair Endowment
I’ll try to post an update later in the season or more towards summer and hopefully John will be able to get out to one of these. He’s been itching to do more running lately and we also have our own special cause in mind.
