What better way to finish off a fun run than having an ice cold beer?
Participants will get to do just that on Sunday, Sept. 23 as Four Winds presents Winded – a five-kilometre fun run around Boundary Bay for charity.
The event, now is its second year, is once again in support of Deltassist.
“We’ve done a couple of runs before, but this is the second year we have branded it as Winded,” said Four Winds Brewing Company sales and marketing director/co-founder Adam Mills. “We like the fact that they [Deltassist] support families with different needs and different programs to assist. It just felt right for us to include them in this.”
Mills said Four Winds likes involving itself in the community and this is a great way to do just that.
“We like to also use the platform that we have built and the reach we have as a company to help out, give back and garner a strength and bond in the community,” he said. “We want to help the community, but it’s also an opportunity to have some fun. We can all get together and have a run and then afterwards have a beer and some barbecue and just hang out and enjoy each other’s company while raising money for a good cause.”
The event is open to all ages for the run and barbecue. You must be of age to have a beer.
The start/finish is at Centennial Beach at Boundary Bay Regional Park and starts at 10 a.m.
Participants can register via raceroster.com and search “Winded.”
