Run, walk, or roll for children’s disabilities

Fraser Valley Child Development Centre is hosting its annual Run, Walk 'n' Roll fundraiser on June 23 at Sardis secondary from 9-12.

Walk or run, rain or sun, Fraser Valley Child Development Centre hopes to see as many people as possible supporting its third annual Run, Walk ‘n’ Roll fundraiser this Saturday.

The family friendly, wheelchair accessible event will take place at the Sardis secondary track on June 23 from 9 a.m. to noon with options of a 1 km walk ‘n’ roll, or a 5 km fun run.

All proceeds raised support children and families with developmental needs.

In addition to the run, walk ‘n’ roll portion of the day, there will also be several other festivities including a bouncy castle, miniature golf, and a concert by award-winning, children’s singer, songwriter and storyteller Michael Mitchell – renowned as Canada’s troubadour of heritage.

This year Fraser Valley Child Development Centre celebrates 30 years of services in the Fraser Valley and looks forward to enhancing the existing programs and services that are community based, easy to access and responsive to the needs of children and their families. Fundraising events like this continue to push the cause forward.

“All money raised goes back into providing services and programs for our 2,300, and then some, children served,” said event organizer Nicole Misura.

All registered participants will receive a t-shirt and lunch.
