The Vancouver Sun Run is Canada’s biggest start line with more than 50,000 participants expected at the event on April 17th. This Run which promotes health, fitness and community spirit invites everyone to join in the fun and ‘share your layers’ with The Salvation Army.
Participants are encouraged to layer up the clothing items that they no longer need, putting on as many as they can, and then throughout the event, peel off and toss those layers to Salvation Army volunteers who will be present along the entire route. Last year we collected nearly 3000 lbs of clothes!
These much needed clothing items are then donated to The Salvation Army Thrift Stores who either give the items to families or individuals in need, or sell them at very affordable prices.
Funds raised from the sale of these items support countless, vital community programs offered by The Salvation Army.
Thank you for supporting the Vancouver Sun Run and The Salvation Army. Your participation is not only a great, healthy activity but it also makes a lasting impact in the lives of others in your community.
