VanIsle 460 Souls in Motion 2020

The VanIsle 460 Souls in Motion 2020 event was a resounding success for organizers Josh Heath and Lisa Large. A total of 210 participants signed up to either run or walk 100 km or 460 km on Vancouver Island's trails, roads, and beaches. The duo's dedication and strong organizational skills resulted in a very generous donation to the Vancouver Island Crisis Society. Here, they present a cheque to our President, Anita Rosewall Peters.

Interesting bits about this unique event:
  • A dog was registered to participate.
  • A baby who piloted an adult runner from a stroller was registered to participate.
  • One of the participants ran and donated from Germany.
We thank Virtual Race Directors Lisa and Josh and the many participants for their contribution of time, athleticism, and funds so that we can keep on Helping People Find Their Way during this challenging year. ❤️
