It’s that time of year again for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice to gear up for another adventure race fundraiser! And, like the year before and the year before, I’m partnering up with these amazing people to help spread the word about the BEST reasons to kayak, bike and run in Vancouver: the beautiful children and their families that are supported by Canuck Place.

About Canuck Place:

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice (CPCH) opened its doors in 1995 and is British Columbia’s recognized pediatric palliative care provider, delivering care to over 670 newborns, teens and families across the province and through two locations: Vancouver and Abbotsford. Care is provided in the areas of respite and family support, 24-hour province-wide phone consultation and in-house clinical care, pain and symptom management, grief and loss counselling, including music and play therapy, art, education, recreation therapy, and end-of-life care. Dedicated, professional staff and over 325 volunteers provide a vital lifeline for children and families in their greatest time of need.

About Canuck Place Adventure Race:

When: Sunday, September 18th

Where: Lorcarno Beach, Vancouver

Who: Children 6-13, Teens 14-18, Adults 18+

The Canuck Place Adventure Race is the ultimate celebration of outdoor athleticism, offering
participants the opportunity to kayak, bike and run at beautiful Locarno Beach, all in support of Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. Adventure Racers can participate as individuals or in teams. Adults and teens can opt to do the full course or tackle the challenge with a group in a three-part relay. New this year, kids 13 and under can choose from a short or long kids course, including a newly expanded obstacle course.
By fundraising, all participants will help provide much needed support for children and families at
Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
Last year, over 130 Adventure Racers helped raise over $80,000 which directly impacted the complex
clinical care needed by over 670 children across BC living with life-threatening illnesses and the families
who love them.
“Life is an adventure, and that is what today was all about,” said Margaret McNeil, Canuck Place CEO,
following last year’s event. Facing the unknown and making adaptations as you go along is what children with life-threatening illnesses and their families face every day. For 20 years, the specialized clinical team at Canuck Place has provided the complex medical care and support these children need to live in the moment together with their families.
As they approach the 2016 event, Canuck Place is encouraging teamwork for all participants. All racers
who register as a group of three or more by August 22nd have the opportunity to receive a 50% refund on their registration fee.
I encourage you to check out the race as a great way to spend time with your family, and raise money for other families who benefit tremendously from Canuck Place.
Since you’re here, why not try your luck at winning 2 FREE Adventure Race entries PLUS a signed 8X10 photo of Henrik Sedin!
Good luck!
