The initial Run4Dreams was a success and it got SOLD OUT! More on that in my upcoming post on Oct 15th, so stay tuned for all the numbers, photos and stats from the first virtual run I ever organized.
Given the success of the first Run4Dreams, I have decided that there will be another one in 2018.
Early bird registration for Run4Dreams 2.0 is officially open!
What is Run4Dreams?
Run4Dreams is a Virtual 5k Race, where the net proceeds from registration will be donated to Help Fill a Dream Foundation. Help Fill A Dream provides hope, help and happiness for Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands’ children under the age of 19 with life-threatening conditions. Help Fill a Dream Foundation fulfils their dreams as well as assists their families with much-needed financial support.
One of those children was Jerry Hughes.
Jerry grew up to be an inspiration to many people.He was born with a rare genetic disorder called Gardner’s Syndrome. Currently, Jerry is one of the top ultra marathoners in Canada. Help Fill a Dream Foundation has made a hugely positive impact on his life when he was younger. Jerry has two young kids of his own now. There is a chance they might have inherited his genetic disorder. However, Jerry’s kids are too young to get tested for it yet. The thought of those two handsome young boys potentially having this disease breaks my heart.
Not only that, but Run4Dreams also aims to unite the running community all over the world.

“My 5km time at the 2017 Park Run in Cloverpoint was a 16:07, which is a personal best for me. I also want to thank Yana Hempler and Jerry Hughes for telling me about what Run 4 Dreams stands for”–Matthew Winkler, local elite runner.
