The Oceanside Running Club (ORCA) donated the net proceeds from the successful 2023 Mother’s Day Run to three non-profit organizations.
A total of more than $5,000 was shared between Haven Society (Oceanside), Forward House and the Oceanside Community Track.
Additionally, there were direct donations totalling more than $1,800 made by local sponsors and via online registrations.
The Mother’s Day Run was held this year after a three-year absence, on a new course in Qualicum Beach. The event, according to the club, would not have been a success without the many volunteers, the support of many local businesses, the Qualicum Beach Legion, and the Town of Qualicum Beach.
Planning is already in the works for next year’s Learn-To-Run Program and the Mother’s Day Run. To learn more, please visit https://orcarunning.ca.
