2013 Aboriginal Moccasin Run/Walk
The Aboriginal Business and Community Development Centre and Carrier Sekani Family Services will be hosting a fun run/walk event on National Aboriginal Day.
This 10k fun run/walk will take place at 10 am on June 21st, starting at 17th Avenue and Dogwood Street and finishing at 17th Avenue and Cedar Street on the North side of Fort George Park. There will also be a 3.5k fun run/walk at 11 am that will start at 20th Avenue and Gorse Street (at the Exploration Place entrance) and finish at 17th Avenue and Cedar Street on the North side of Fort George Park. Participants are welcome to pick up registration forms from any of the ABDC staff (3845 15th Avenue), the CSFS staff (987 4th Avenue) or register online below. A signed hard copy will be your entry form for prizes after the race. We will also be barbequing for participants of the moccasin run/walk.
This year, staff of ABDC and CSFS participated in a 13 week Learn to Walk/Run program hosted by Aboriginal SportMed BC. The purpose of the training was to improve our health and fitness levels. We trained for 13 weeks and competed in the Vancouver Sun Run.
The SportMed Run Walk programs have been developed by Canada’s leading experts in Sport Medicine and built on the most advanced applied expertise in Sport Science.
We are encouraging other local groups to join us in this fun event. The general community is encouraged to participate as well.
