Rogers Insurance Run For L'Arche
Saturday, March 27, 2021
We are delighted to announce our 11th Annual Rogers Insurance Run for L'Arche Event, to take place this coming March 2021!
For those who have been on the journey with us, or are new to our important fundraising event, Rogers Insurance helped found a mixed Run/Walk Event in 2011 in conjunction with Economical Insurance, our "Presenting Sponsor" since inception. Rogers Insurance continues to coordinate and lead the Race, one of the most popular events on the Calgary Running Calendar.
To date, you have helped raise $500,000 for L'Arche Calgary programs to support people with developmental disabilities. Here in Calgary, we operate five homes, a Supported Independent Living Program, and the Tamarack Day Program. We create a community with over 100 people, including 33 core members with disabilities.
L'Arche Calgary is part of a network of 31 communities across Canada and 153 Communities in 8 Countries on 5 Continents.
Traditionally we have provided Certified Half Marathon, 10km & 5Km Distances,
here on the City of Calgary Pathways System. We have also hosted a
1Km Fun Snowman's Run and Obstacle Course.
