This year, as in past years, we are hoping to put together a Tennyson Tigers team for the RBC Run for the Kids, held June 5, 2016. As the largest family fun run in Vancouver, RBC Run for the Kids (formerly ChildRun) inspires participants to raise funds for childhood cancer and mental health initiatives at BC Children's Hospital. On Sunday, June 5, 2016, the RBC Run for the Kids will host runners and walkers of all ages and abilities on a scenic 5km or 2km Fun Run route, followed by a carnival celebration.
See more at http://www.bcchf.ca/events/event-calendar/rbc-run-for-the-kids/, and look under "search for a team," and "Tennyson Tigers."
Early bird entry prices available until April 18, and team entries need to be in by May 16. We need 20 participants to qualify as a team. Parents should sign up with their kids for the run unless they know their child is old enough to navigate a very busy running course on their own, and capable of finding a prearranged meeting spot after the race. There will be no supervision of children by anyone other than the parent. If your child can raise $150 dollars (a few well-timed lemonade stands), entry is complimentary.
Starting in mid-April, Tennyson will host a Kilometre Club for running every Tuesday morning (more info on that soon!), which is a great way for kids to prepare for the fun run.
