Longest Day of the Year, 4th annual

With a grey, dark rainy Saturday, we were all very concerned about the weather for Sunday. We have lucked out the last 3 years and not had rain. And we lucked out again!

Waking up to clouds, and a dark one over Vancouver, the grass was damp on arrival, however no rain and sunny blue sky's as the day went on.

Thank you to everyone who attending in supporting
The Travel Group and the Vancouver Downtown East Side
with our 4th annual event.
Each year we add a more to the event, in hopes to make it bigger and better.
This year Marie from Insight toWellness was invited to do a pre-race stretch.

Alam was the first to cross the finish line taking the first honors
many were hot on his heels

The fastest runner this year was Alar.
A frist timer, and hopefully not his last.

Our 4 legged contestants were said to slow our walkers down with all the stopping and sniffing, but they enjoyed the walk, and some play time with their new squeeky toys.

There were limited contestants for Sexy Shorts this year.
Karen took the prize with her mint green shorts.

The day was full of laughs, food and fun.
Raising money for the Vancouver Downtown Eastside.
