Charity Spotlight




We're delighted to be fundraising for our local HEROES!
Our charity partner is the Richmond Hospital Foundation.


Founded in 1987, Richmond Hospital Foundation is a registered charity committed to ensuring donor dollars have an impact on building a better and healthier future for Richmond.


At Richmond Hospital Foundation, joy is at the very heart of the work we do. We inspire joyful giving, because to give joyfully is to know that you are part of the solution. You are part of something bigger than yourself. You are helping your loved ones, your friends, your neighbours and your colleagues – you are a driver of health and prosperity.




Most prizing is provided by businesses based in BC or Vancouver, so should awards be won by anyone living outside this area (unable to redeem them) they will be substituted with a free entry to a future Big Fun Run Series Virtual or in-person run.
