BC Schizophrenia Society was once again part of the Scotiabank Vancouver Marathon’s Charity Challenge — leading to about 30 runners and walkers fundraising through six teams in support of the programs and services that are provided free of charge to families affected by schizophrenia and serious mental illness.

A huge thank you to all our fearless runners and walkers who braved the heat and covered approximately 150kms cumulatively to demonstrate their dedication to raising awareness and funds for BCSS.

As a thank all our runners and fundraisers, we are pleased to have been able to award prizes to some of our top fundraisers, and enter all participants into a random draw.

Congratulations to our winners!
