Vecova’s 2nd Annual Strength in Abilities Run

Strength in Abilities Thank You Image

What an incredible day! 69 participants showed up in support of our Strength in Abilities Run on June 25th, 2017 ready to run, walk or roll to raise funds for persons with disabilities in Calgary. We even had a few participants who dared to take a path less travelled and went off-roading amongst the trees. We salute your ambition and appreciate your dedication and patience!

On behalf of Vecova and its clients, we thank all of our 2nd annual Strength in Abilities Run and Walk participants and volunteers for joining us in celebration of Canada’s accomplishments in the field of disability and in honour of those who find strength in their abilities. And of course, thank you for your support of the work that Vecova does to help people with disabilities and their families thrive.

Finally, thank you to all of the Vecova staff, board members and clients who participated and/or volunteered their time to help us make this day successful: your efforts are truly appreciated.
We are very grateful for the support that you all have shown our community. You have made a difference!
