UBC Run for Rural Medicine
The Run for Rural Medicine is an annual charity walk/run event organized by students of UBC's Faculty of Medicine. Run 5k or 10k along the scenic waterfront route along Jericho/Spanish Bank beaches in support of Hope Air, a national charity working towards equal access to healthcare by providing free flights to people who need specialized treatment far from home. There will also be food, great draw prizes and a prize for the top fundraiser.
Stay after for food, draw prizes, a top fundraiser prize and more! All proceeds for the run will go to Hope Air, a charity that provides free flights for Canadians in need to get to urban centres for medical care.
