No dampened spirits at wet Burnaby Lake Run

No dampened spirits at wet Burnaby Lake Run

September 30, 2019

It was windy. It was cold. And it was very, very wet. Yet hundreds of participants still put on a brave face for a day of family fun – and a good cause – at the Burnaby Lake Run last Sunday. This year’s run, put on by the LaPower Running Club and sponsored by Concord, included a 1.8-kilometer run for kids as well as five and ten-kilometer runs. With proceeds benefitting Burnaby Hopsital Foundation, many showed up despite the weather. Local elected representatives who participated included Vancouver-Kingsway MP and B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix, Burnaby Mayor Mike Hurley and Burnaby Councillor James Wang. The winner of the ten-kilometer run, Carey Nelson donated his first-place prize directly to the Foundation.
