LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR FUNDRAISER
JUNE 21TH, 2020 ~ VIRTUAL
With the travel industry reeling from the Covid-10 pandemic, local Vancouver travel industry folks still found it in their hearts to support our annual Longest day walk/run to raise awareness for the Saint James Music Academy in the Vancouver downtown Eastside. This says a lot about the incredible character of people working in travel! We had excellent “virtual” participation from as far away as Ontario!
With low registration we didn’t think we were going to reach our goal of “1,000 km for kids” however, everyone stepped up and got posting. Using #LongestDay & #SJMA stating their distance we got very close to our goal.
Thank you to Michael and Philip for each getting in a ride over 100 km ! We had several runner reaching over 10 km, lots of families out for walks on the beautiful summer day. We had a unicycle as well as some kayakers to bring our consecutive total to 996 km.
We did not ask for donations this year due to the catastrophic effect of Covid-19 on the travel industry, this year was about awareness. If you wish to donate please note ‘Longest Day’ on the 2nd page for your reason for donating.
