WHERE CAN 5K TAKE US?

5 km can go a long way in helping people with spinal cord injuries and related disabilities adjust, adapt, and thrive—but we need your help to get there.

On June 23 bring your family and friends together and join SCI BC’s Team Walk ‘n’ Rollers in the 5K Scotiabank Charity Challenge at Stanley Park in Vancouver.

Together, we’re aiming to raise $75,000 to support SCI BC’s programs, resources, and Peer support so everyone with an SCI can #AccessPossibility.

WHEN?

Sunday, June 23, 2019
9:30 am

Keep an eye out for pre-event training, events and news!

WHERE?

5 km race participants should arrive before 8:30 am and meet at Stanley Park Drive beside Ceperley Field. More location details can be found on our FAQ page.

Visit us at our Charity Village tent after the race is over for socializing and swag!

HOW?

Registration is easy! Just email Terry at tchen@sci-bc.ca and we’ll take it from there.
