Barrier Free Canada Cup (BFC)

supported by the Rick Hansen Foundation Access4All Canada 150 Signature Project (6:30 pm)

Nine teams that engage and include individuals of different abilities and backgrounds race down the historic False Creek race course for glory, and to raise funds for their causes during the inaugural Barrier Free Canada Cup supported by the Rick Hansen Foundation Access4All Canada150 Signature Project.

Concord Pacific will match pledges (up to $5,000) for the team that raises the most for their charity during the entire Festival weekend to support that charity's vital work.
