Join the Alzheimer Society of B.C. team in the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon and 5k




The Alzheimer Society is pleased to once again be one of the charitable partners in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge, as part of the Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5k. Taking place on Sunday, June 28, this event allows participants to fundraise for their chosen charity while running or walking across Vancouver's beautiful scenery. 

The half-marathon starts at UBC with the 5k starting in Stanley Park. Both routes finish in Stanley Park, where participants are encouraged to stay for post-event celebrations. We would love to celebrate with you! Whether you are an intense athlete, weekend warrior or causal stroller, by joining us and fundraising, you will be making a difference in the lives of those across the province impacted by dementia.

Did you also know what’s good for the heart is what’s good for the head? Participating in the event is an easy way to lead by example and get brain boosting activity. 

To join our fundraising  team, follow these easy steps:

1) Register at www.vancouverhalf.ca and follow the prompts.

2) Join our team by selecting "Alzheimer Society of B.C." under "Register to Run the Charity Challenge" (you will see an image of a runner and a piggy bank).
