Team Charlie’s Angels is running and rolling once again in the BMO Vancouver Marathon!

About BMO Vancouver Marathon

This year marks the 52nd BMO Vancouver Marathon! RUN4HOPE, the charity program of the BMO Vancouver Marathon, aims to raise funds for social impact and community good, and foster a spirit of community celebration—and Canuck Place is a proud charity partner.

About Charlie’s Angels

Once again, Canuck Place child Charlie-Anne Cox is participating under her own team, “Charlie’s Angels,” and is rolling 21km in the race to raise funds for Canuck Place alongside her mom, step dad, and friends! 

About Charlie-Anne

Charlie-Anne wasn’t supposed to see her first birthday. She is 14 years old and has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) type 1. SMA is a genetic condition that causes muscle weakness and atrophy and affects a child’s ability to crawl, walk, sit up, and control their own head movements. It also causes severe damage to the muscles used for breathing and swallowing. Charlie-Anne has been
on the Canuck Place program since she was 9 months old.

In the center is a young girl in a wheelchair wearing sunglasses and a neck support, their arms raised mid-laughter. On the right is another man, crouching slightly, in a gray long-sleeved shirt and navy shorts, clapping and laughing along.
