Run Walk’n Roll FUNDraiser 2016
This year was another record year for us! Our third annual event held on May 15th, was a terrific success! We had 230 race participants and close to 30 volunteers participating and helping to raise much needed funds for our family support program. The 2016 Run Walk’n Roll Committee thanks everyone for making this day so successful and we look forward to seeing you all again next year on Sunday May 14th, 2017.
As in previous years, our runners and walkers were able to choose from 2 accessible course options through scenic Harris Landing & Shoreline Park in Pitt Meadows. Once again the weather cooperated beautifully with participants of all ages and abilities smiling as they enjoyed the morning with friends, family and community members. Following the main event, there were still plenty of activities to take part in such as a bouncy castle, children’s games, door prizes and raffle draws.
We are truly grateful for the support of our many volunteers who helped make the day run smoothly. A special thank you to Bev Leon, an elder from Katzie First Nation, as well as several RMACL staff, self-advocates and the corporate teams that joined us! We would also like to recognize the many individuals who collected donations and pledges for this year’s event!
We are already looking forward to next year and trust that we will continue to provide an event that is fun and promotes full inclusion and healthy living with all proceeds raised designated to our Family Support Program.
Lastly, just one more thank you to our community minded sponsors and partners that helped make the day a success. We applaud these companies and services, as they share our vision of creating an inclusive and welcoming community. We could not offer this event without their support.
