This past Sunday Bennett and Ashley participated in the 31st annual Sun Run in Vancouver. Since 1985 the Sun Run has become Canada’s largest 10K road race. Originally the race’s purpose was to promote fitness, gathering 3,200 runners.
This year’s Sun Run gathered over 40,000 runners and the funds raised go to 6 local charities including BC Children’s Hospital, BC SPCA, Heart & Stroke Foundation, BC Women’s Hospital & Health Foundation, Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation, Ronald McDonald House British Columbia.
The 10K run starts on Georgia, down to Beach Ave to Pacific and Burrard, then runners head down Cornwall to 4th & Granville to Oak St. Once they hit Cambie its just over the bridge to Pacific Blvd where everyone gathers at BC Place for a rest, drinks & snacks and to wait for friends.
Bennett was at the top of our office times with 50min and 24 seconds, with Ashley not too far behind at 1hour 10minutes and 44 seconds.
This run aligns perfectly with our views & you will most likely see us out there again next year as Raven tries to move towards healthier lifestyles and supporting the community.
Big thanks to Brian for donating to the Kid Start team!!
