Helping Children and Families Inspires Us

A significant part of our caring community in Vancouver is the Canuck Place Children's Hospice.

Helping children and families in need

Opened in 1995, Canuck Place provides special care for children who are terminally ill and their parents. Thousands of children and their families over the years have received "medical respite, pain and symptom management, art, music, and recreation therapy, end-of-life care, and grief, loss, and bereavement counselling." Today, over 715 children are currently in their care.

As part of its fundraising efforts, this internationally recognized centre of care stages the Canuck Place Adventure Race. For adults, the race consists of a 15km mountain bike ride, 6km run with an obstacle course finish. There is also the Kids' Challenge which includes a 3km bike ride, 2km run, with a fun obstacle course finish!

This year's Race was held on Sunday, September 16, starting at Jericho Beach Park East.

Sponsor of Canuck Place Adventure Race Bike Course

Kerr Construction is proud to be the sponsor of this year's 15km Bike Course.

"We believe that community is important and our company is dedicated to building a better lifestyle for all," says Doug Kerr, founder of Kerr Construction. "Helping children and families in need is why Canuck Place is a cause we support."

Company participation in event

On Race Day, a contingent of Kerr Construction staff provided support services for the race. They included Rebecca Chalon, Chris Kerr, Nisha MacNeil, Andrew Butler, Evy Iverson, Keira Mao, and Eric Linzmeier. Eric, Evy and Keira also participated in the Race.

The fundraising efforts of the day were a success with over $68,000 raised.

"We urge others to support Canuck Place and donate to this worthy cause," encourages Doug.
