Cheque Ceremony

Shortly before our regular run/walk on Wednesday September 24th, The Vancouver Frontrunners hosted a cheque ceremony where Pride Run and Walk beneficiaries, Out In Schools and QMUNITY each received a cheque from monies raised. Barb Snelgrove, our official Master of Ceremonies was also at the event and was thanked by the club for her continuing contribution to Pride Run.

Here are some photos from the ceremony:
