2016 Scotiabank Charity Challenge – Sunday June 26 2016
It’s that time of year again! VPL Foundation is offering Friends an exclusive opportunity to run and fundraise for our favourite library in 2016!
Current members of Friends of the VPL are eligible to enter a draw for free entries to the Scotiabank Charity Challenge 5k or Half-Marathon. The draw will be held on Friday, March 11, 2016.
In 2015 Friends members took advantage of this partnership, ran a great race, and together the team raised over $5000 for the Vancouver Public Library!
In 2016, we look forward to seeing you again in the race and at the Charity Village on June 26th.
If you would like to be included in the draw, please contact Margaret Buttner at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604 331-4041.
