A run organized for this Saturday benefitting the Fraser Canyon Hospital has been postponed until Oct. 3 due to smoky skies.
The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation announced the run, originally meant to take place the morning of Sept. 19, will be postponed as smoke isn’t clearing as previously predicted and health and safety of runners and volunteers is paramount.
People interested in taking part in the Oct. 3 run can choose to run in one of two heats, one at 9 a.m. and another at 10:30 a.m. They can also do a run where and when they are able to, a virtual option organizers say is available. Runners can collect pledges, the funds from which go to purchasing a Nasoparyngoscope and a stretcher bed for the hospital’s emergency department.
The total financial need for these items, the foundation states, is $39,000. The foundation raises money for equipment and programs that are either funded or endorsed by Fraser Health for communities from Abbotsford to Hope.
