The inaugural Kids Run for Nature took place at Fraser River Heritage Park on Saturday (June 8) with 18 participants running the one, three or five kilometre course.
The run was started in 2015 by two Ontario girls who wanted to raise awareness about the environment and endangered species.
The World Wildlife Federation eventually took the event over and there are now 28 runs held across the country in June.
Since it began, thousands of runners and their families across Canada have laced up and raised nearly $200,000 in support of WWF-Canada’s conservation efforts.
The Mission run brings local kids and families out to support nature through WWF-Canada’s conservation efforts.
