Pumpkin Run set for Oct. 30 in White Rock

There's still time to register for the 10th annual National Bank Financial Great Pumpkin Run/Walk

Don’t be alarmed if you see hordes of people dressed as villains, ghosts or princesses running through the streets the day before Halloween.

More than 1,500 people are expected to turn up for the 10th annual National Bank Financial Great Pumpkin Run Walk in support of the Peace Arch Hospital ER campaign.

The race starts at 9:15 a.m. at Bayview Park with registration beginning at 8 a.m. Online registration can be done at www.pahfoundation.ca

Last year, the run walk generated $90,000 for the Peace Arch Hospital’s ER fund, and this year organizers are hoping to raise $100,000.

“It’s fun, family friendly, pet friendly event that the whole community can come out and support. I think that shows in the revenues we’re able to generate for our hospital,” said Stephanie Beck, executive director of the Peace Arch Hospital foundation.

Organizers have expanded the event’s kid’s zone. This year will include cookie decorating, arts, crafts, games, face-painting, bouncy castles, mini-golf, food trucks and a pancake breakfast.

If you’re interested in raising funds prior to the event, you can create a fundraising page on the foundation’s website.
