JQ RBC Run for the Kids (June 4, 2017)

Thanks to all the JQ Families that participated in the 2017 Run for the Kids – $1 Million Raised for BC’s Kids

On June 4 more than 5900 participants, supported by countless donors, volunteers and sponsors, ran or walked the 5K or the 2K Fun Run and raised an incredible $1 million for childhood cancer and mental health research and treatment areas at BC Children’s Hospital.

Over the past 32 years more than $13 million has been raised through the run, supporting the urgent needs of BC’s kids. Kids like Will Heine, this year’s champion.

JOIN THE JQ Run for the Kids TEAM!

Jules Quesnel had a team at RBC Run for the Kids (formerly ChildRun) on Sunday, June 4, 2017.

This wonderful event is held annually as a part of the BC Children’s Hospital Miracle Weekend Telethon and raises funds for childhood cancer research and treatment areas in addition to mental health programs at BC Children’s Hospital. Chances are most of us have been touched by the lifesaving care of Children’s Hospital.
