Vecova

Vecova’s Third Annual Strength in Abilities Run

Strength in Abilities Thank You TW

Over 100 people participated in the 2K, 5K and 10K races at Vecova’s third annual Strength in Abilities Run on Sunday, June 24. We want to thank you all for your support, enthusiasm and energy. Construction along Crowchild Trail caused slight detours on the pathway, so we appreciate everyone’s patience!

We would like to thank all our participants and volunteers for their help at this event, which supports Vecova’s programs and services for persons with disabilities. We had a number of staff, board members and clients who also participated and volunteered their time to help us make this event another success, and we truly appreciate all of their help.

With this run, we were able to recognize the strength individuals have to embrace their abilities. It is because of the support of our sponsors and donors that we are able to provide this inclusive event for persons of all abilities. We are so grateful to everyone involved, whether you were in the race, supported a friend or made a contribution.

Thank you again for all of your help and support!

Congratulations to the first, second and third place top times for each race. Participants with the top times will be contacted by email this week, so keep an eye on your inbox!
