Run/Walk for the Homeless 2007
What a huge success! Thank you to several hundred participants and the fast organizational efforts of the National Triathlon Centre and PacificSport, who together raised over $2,700 in addition to nine large “garbage bags” filled with warm clothing, and several dozen grocery bags filled with non-perishable foods. This more than doubles what was raised last year in the first-ever Run/Walk for the Homeless and makes a wonderful gift for those in Cool Aid shelters and housing. Thanks especially to Stephen Kilshaw, Scott Dagnall, Kristy Franzen and the good folks at the Ministry of Employment and Income Assistance for their stellar efforts.
