Run for Light

May 14, 2013 - At a recent Board of Directors meeting it was decided that due to the increasing cost, staff and volunteer time commitment and the fluctuation in revenue from the run due to weather dependence and the number of other recreational opportunities available in Vancouver, the association has determined that we need to ensure we put our resources into physical activity programs for British Columbians who are blind or visually impaired. We have therefore determined that we will not hold a Run for Light in 2013. BC Blind Sports will explore other options for events in the future.

BC Blind Sports thanks our supporters, volunteers, staff, donors, participants and the community who have contributed to the Run over the past 33 years.
