This May, we’re inviting you to a one-of-a-kind, 2-in-1 family friendly event that you won’t want to miss.
Victoria Buzz 1K Family Fun Run
This year, we’re partnering up with Touch a Truck and BC Children’s Hospital to bring you a 1K run at the event – keeping it short and sweet so that everyone can take part!
Besides offering a healthy, family-friendly contest, the fun run is aimed at raising funds for the BC Children’s Hospital.
You’ll also have the opportunity to win amazing prizes when you register for the run! Plus, once you raise $100, you’ll automatically win a free Touch A Truck t-shirt, and additional entries to win prizes for every consequent $100 raised.
What is Touch a Truck?
This annual fundraising event is organized by Team 4 Hope (an organization that raises funds and awareness about paediatric cancer, particularly Neuroblastoma), and gives local kids the opportunity to get behind the wheels of all kinds of trucks – firetrucks, ambulances, dump trucks, you name it!
Sponsored by Island Savings and Fairway Market, the popular event also features a BBQ, face painting, a bouncy castle, and other fun family events.
All funds raised from ticket sales will be donated to paediatric oncology research at the BC Children’s Hospital.
