Bend your elbow for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation

The Pub Run has raised over $112,000 to help purchase important medical equipment

It’s one of Campbell River’s favourite exercise programs.

When you bend your elbow at a local pub June 7, you follow it with digging out your wallet and handing some of the contents over to participants in the 23rd annual Campbell River Sportfit group’s Pub Run.

Feel free to get the most cardiovascular benefit by repeating the motions often. The biggest benefactor, of course, will be the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.

Over the past 20 years, the Pub Run (consisting of a keen group of 20-30 runners, most who have secured and collected pledges beforehand) has raised over $112,000 to help purchase important medical equipment for the Campbell River Hospital.

The 2013 Pub Run is a total of 7.3 km, with the Hospital Foundation providing pilot vehicles to assist anyone who needs a rest or a ride. This year the Pub Runners will begin at the Willows Pub and end at Boston Pizza.

Registration will commence at 5:30 p.m. and you will leave the Willows at 6 p.m. running pub to pub, collecting pledges, selling 50/50 tickets & generally making spectacles of yourselves.

This year the theme is Superheroes, keep your eyes out for this dedicated enthusiastic group at your favorite pub!

Interested in joining the Pub Runners this year? Run with them have fun while supporting the hospital. For more information, call the Hospital Foundation Office at 250-850-2418.

Now get practising for the runners’ arrival June 7: bend elbow, dig into wallet, hand over money. Repeat.

Come on now, work it. Feel it.
