BC Epilepsy Society Partners with the Vancouver Sun Run!

We are excited to announce that the BC Epilepsy Society is one of the charity partners of the Vancouver Sun Run! We hope you will join us as a runner or walker during the 2023 Vancouver Sun Run on April 16th, 2023 or donate to us!

The primary goals of the Vancouver Sun Run are the promotion of health, fitness, and a sense of community. When the race began in 1985, just 3,200 participants walked or ran on the streets of downtown Vancouver. Each year the race grew, attracting new people to what soon became a Vancouver tradition of fun and fitness. Although not designed as a charity event, the Vancouver Sun Run is proud to have donated more than $3.23 million in proceeds for important causes since 1985.

The BC Epilepsy Society is so excited to be partnering with the Vancouver Sun Run in 2023. The passion, energy, and support from the Vancouver Sun Run and all of its participants will help us in our mission of supporting the over 50,000 people living with epilepsy in BC and their families, friends, and loved ones and raising awareness of epilepsy in the community and around the world. The incredible support of donors like you allows this important work to continue. On behalf of everyone at the BC Epilepsy Society, we thank you for your support.
