On a fantastic sunny morning, on the future site of Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Abbotsford, over 170 people gathered for a beautiful walk/run out and around Mill Lake and back.
Spurred on by the live performance of The Higgins and a warmup by Innovative Fitness owners from Langley and Abbotsford, participants came to run or stroll with children at their side, all the while knowing that they were doing their part to ensure that Canuck Place services would soon be available in their community!

A community Barbeque was held following the event with M&M Meats’ Pindy and Jay (Abbotsford East) on hand to cook.
Other treats were supplied by our generous sponsors, Cobs Bread, Coke, Envision Financial, Quantum Properties, Sunlife Financial, 7 Oaks Shopping Centre, Costco and Arctic Glacier Ice.
Special thanks to Innovative Fitness, Country 107.1, Abbotsford News and Punjabi Patrika, Star Rentals and Abbotsford Party Rentals for their generous support.
Canuck Place is overwhelmed by the incredible generosity that the community has shown and we are grateful for the encouragement as we work towards construction.
This truly is a project built by the community and for that, and all the countless volunteers and advocates working on our behalf, Thank You!
