Families Helping Kids


Moms are never too busy to give back to the community, we just need to be reminded of how we can help from time to time.

That’s why Savvymom.ca is pleased to remind you to lace up your running shoes, join the fight against childhood cancer and get ready for this year’s ChildRun in support of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation taking place Sunday, June 1.

Together with over 5,500 other dedicated participants, you can help raise funds for research and treatment areas at BC Children’s Hospital. Last year, 100% of donations raised went directly towards the hospital thanks to generous support from sponsors.

As if that wasn’t enough incentive to get out and run (or walk) the 5K or the Thrifty Foods 1K Fun Run, prizes include a chance to win a flight from Air Canada and a Canucks jersey signed by Jason Garrison. But there’s more: for every participant who raises a minimum of $1,000, Chip Wilson (founder of lululemon athletica and whil) will donate an additional $1,000 directly to the hospital. Keep the competitive spirit alive for this event because it’ll help a great cause.

Come on your own, or make a day of it and gather your family and friends to join you. Individuals and families can register until 8:30 a.m. on the morning of the run.

The Deets:

– Cost to register is $25 for kids and $35 for adults until May 20
– After May 20, $30 for kids and $40 for adults
– Register or donate at www.childrun.com

Spending the morning outside, doing something healthy with your kids—that’s fun. Teaching your children how to help others, that’s important.
