With no rain in sight, we did not even have to think of a "rain" plan. One day our luck will run out!
Heading into a long dry summer, we had an incredible day on June 21st, raising money for the Vancouver downtown eastside. Each year raising a little more money and getting a few more people to attend.
This year we added door prizes to the mix. Thank you to the sponsors: Air Canada, Lufthansa, Manulife Travel Insurance, Travel 2, The Travel Group, & The Western Beer Club for your great donations. And congratulations to all the winners!
Thank you to Marie from Insight to Wellness for coming to give us a pre-race stretch and thank you to Starbucks for your continued support in donating coffee every year.
To the surprise of Anne-Marie she took first place for the fastest runner, with a time just over 45 minutes.
Freddie & Dave came in at tandem for the fastest walkers at 51 minutes. Dave was also a wild hat winner, with a funky chicken hat.
There were some fabulous hats, and we could not do just 1 prize. Corene was a runner up with her Mickey Mouse hat.
Enjoying the sun, food and fundraising we wrapped up our event at noon to spend the day with our Fathers on Fathers Day.
