Walk, Wheel or Run Your Way to the Finish Line
We’re thrilled to be putting together Team Camp Kerry for the Scotiabank Charity Challenge 5K and Half Marathon taking place Sunday, June 23rd. Whether you are doing the Half Marathon from UBC to Stanley Park, or the 5K loop from Lost Lagoon to English Bay, this is one of the most scenic tracks in North America.
In the past the Charity Challenge has helped the Camp Kerry Society raise a considerable about of money that plays a vital role in Camp Kerry’s operations. That means more help for more families.
The scenery is spectacular, the energy is electric, and the positivity you will bring to both yourself and Camp Kerry makes this event worthwhile. We would love for you to lace up and come run, walk, or stroll with us. Your support gives us stride to our step.
Yours in sweat,
The Charity Challenge
The Scotiabank Charity Challenge in Vancouver provides a unique opportunity for people just like you to help make a difference through nearly 100 different charitable organizations each year. If you enjoy being active and want to help a great cause this event might just be for you.
On Sunday, June 23, 2019, Team Camp Kerry will be participating in the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon & 5K and we’d love for you to join us. As a participant, you have the option to walk, wheel or run your way to the finish line in either the 5K event around Stanley Park in Vancouver, or in the Half Marathon, which begins at UBC and finishes at the same location as the 5K.
As a Camp Kerry Team Member you can customize your own fundraising page so that your friends and family members can sponsor you for the run. Every dollar you raise will be counted in the Charity Challenge and go towards much needed bereavement supports for children, youth and families from all over the province of British Columbia.
