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.
