The Run, Walk & Roll is one of Nanaimo’s up and coming running events attracting over 180 participants in 2012 and raising just under $14,000 for the Nanaimo Child Development Centre. With incredible scenic views on the routes, safety paramount for all involved, and open to participants of all abilities, this event has wide spread demographic appeal which attracts families and individuals alike.
With the options of a 2 Km, 5 Km or 10 Km, it is expected the event will at least double the number of participants this year.
At this annual event, the CDC strives to:
Create opportunities for people to achieve their personal best
Increase knowledge in our community that people of all abilities can participate
Increase awareness and empowerment for people of all abilities to develop and maintain healthy and active lifestyles
Increase access to services and activities such as sport and fitness to promote health, independence and community integration
No child with special needs should wait for quality services. Our pressing immediate need is to dramatically reduce the waitlist
at the Centre by funding therapies and support for children with special needs. In order to do this, we need your help. Your
donation will help children now, while also “Opening Doors” for their future. To help us, call (250) 753-0251 Ext. 227 or email
