CFDR Fun Run/Walk 2018
Recap of the 14th Annual Fun Run/Walk
We challenged participants of the CFDR Run in Vancouver to exceed the pledges raised at the St. John’s Run in 2017. We’re pleased to announce that the ‘West’ won by raising a record breaking $20,670 in pledges! That’s $2,500 more than St. John’s. Sponsors also contributed $12,500.
Despite the rain, runners and walkers enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the Stanley Park in the company of friends.
Congratulations to the fastest runners: Timothy Lau for the Men’s 10K, Hao-Yi Sim winner of the Men’s 5K, Sandra Kilmartin for the Women’s 10K, and Katie Henderson winner of the Women’s 5K. Nathalie Savoie raised $1,650 in pledges, and prizes were awarded to our other top fundraisers including; Lynda Corby ($890), Lois Barney ($740) and Maria D’Agostino ($650).
A very special thank you to Gail Hammond, our Lead Volunteer in Vancouver, as well as the many volunteers who helped out on the day of the event, and whose support and commitment played a huge role in our success!
We’d also like to recognize the generous contributions of our sponsors; (Gold) Dairy Farmers of Canada, (Silver) PepsiCo, (Bronze) Almond Board of California, BOOST, Canadian Sugar Institute, Summer Fresh Salads, Tim Hortons and Prize Sponsor, PROLINK.
Proceeds from the Run will support CFDR’s mandate to fund practice-based dietetic research.
