Fun Runs
Patricia's Weekly Feature

 

     A great way to help out your community and stay fit is to participate in a fun run. The “Child Run” starts next to Children’s Hospital at 9:00 a.m. on June 5. The gentle 5 kilometre route circles through colourful Queen Elizabeth Park. Food, refreshments, fun prizes and entertainment follow this family event. Plus, the funds raised support important research in childhood cancer. Another upcoming event is the “Run for Light” on May 27 at 9:00 p.m. at Lumberman’s Arch in Stanley Park. This is one of the few evening fun runs. A glow in the dark T-shirt and a light stick are given out as part of the entry package and help light up the 4.3 kilometre seawall course. While weaving around this glowing route, participants may reflect on the challenges the blind face and know that the funds they’ve contributed for this event will go to assist BC Blind Sports. If you are interested in combining fitness with fundraising, sign up for one of the many upcoming events listed on these websites below.
