FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A memorial run is being organized in honour of a former local athlete.
The Vertical Slam Ultimate Challenge will be holding the ‘Friends of Steve Sadownik Memorial Run’.
According to organizers, this event is not a race but rather a chance to be with your community and enjoy the trails of the Fish Creek Community Forest.
Participants can walk or run 5 km with the opportunity to complete up to 50 km.
The cost to participate in the Run is $25.00 per person.
Those wishing to participate can register online.
Proceeds from this event will go towards a memorial bench in honour of Sadownik and the remainder of the funds will go into the community.
The ‘Friends of Steve Sadownik Memorial Run’ is taking place on June 15, 2019 at the Fish Creek Community Forest.
