For the fifth year in a row, the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC participated in the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon and Charity Challenge. #TeamCPABC included a whopping 37 walkers, runners and rollers of all ages and physical abilities. This is the most participants we have ever had! Eight participants ran the half marathon while the remaining 29 conquered the 5k. Their efforts paid off by raising over $10,000!
Our “long distance” runners Krystel McKinnon and son Buck Lewis travelled all the way from Prince George to participate in the 5k. Here they are pictured with fellow 5k participants Cheryl Stevenson and son Finnegan.
Cerebral palsy effects my everyday life but I don’t plan to limit my goals and dreams anytime soon, thanks to the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC. I am participating in this year’s 5k because I believe in conquering a Life Without Limits for myself as well as others. I’m excited about the run and am thrilled to be supporting a cause so close to my heart,” – Mohini Takhar, 5k participant and member of the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC
The Cerebral Palsy Association of BC would like to thank everyone who participated in the race on behalf of #TeamCPABC. Each and every member of the team deserves a huge pat on the back for their hard work training for the race and fundraising. We also want to thank everyone who donated to our team. Funds raised will be used directly for our programs, services and scholarships. Together we can create a Life Without Limits for people with disabilities across BC.
It’s not too late to donate! Help us reach our goal of $25,000 before July 23, 2018.
