On May 26, 2013 the Rotary Club of Richmond participated as a Gold Sponsor in the SOS Children's Village Run in Richmond BC. Our club had a great turn out of members wearing their Club golf shirts and participating in the run. Richmond Rotaractors were volunteering in the Oval Parkade.

Hon. Alice Wong, MP, an Honourary member of our club who helped to open the event! Past President Ken Whitney ran back across the Finish line hands help high while the local community cheered for returning runners!

SOS BC has been an amazing organization helping at risk youth in the foster care system by giving them long term stable environments in a community atmosphere where they can grow, thrive, and receive the support they deserve. In BC there are close to 16,000 youth without their biological parents, and over 67,000 nation wide.
