This years RUNVAN Granville Island Turkey Trot may have looked a bit different. Different start lines, different finish line moments, different atmosphere. But the display of our running community’s resilience, gratitude for the sport and commitment to supporting others was all the same.

R&R is honoured to contribute $500 towards the total $5500 raised for the Greater Food Bank, Share Family and Community Services, Surrey Food Bank, and Richmond Food Bank Society. Times are tight for everyone these days, but if you’re in a position where you can spare a dollar please consider contributing to this great cause http://ow.ly/drGh50CKhZW
