Canuck Place Children's Hospice is one of those things I'm grateful exists, while simultaneously hoping I never need to visit.
The Canuck Place Adventure Race 2014 is a family-oriented, multi-sport event and barbecue held to raise funds for critical care programs for BC children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. It will be held September 7, 2014 at Jericho Beach and consists of different courses to suit all abilities.
You can register as an individual or as a team. The course offers the best of Vancouver - kayak, mountain bike, and trail run - in varying lengths to accommodate all levels of physical fitness. You don't have to be a superstar athlete to participate, The Canuck Place Adventure Race is meant to be a fun, family-friendly event. There's a great FAQ section on the site if you have any questions (like "will I have to bring my own kayak?" Nope! You don't! Kayaks are supplied.)
Grady and I aren't feeling very sporty this year so we're not going to tackle the course but we are going to check out the barbecue and show our support for BC's sick kids. We'd love to see you there!
