Inaugural Easter Seals Fun Run to support Camp Winfield

New event set for April 19 to help raise funds for disabled kids

If you share compassion for disabled kids and their families, the inaugural Easter Seals Splash of Colour Family Fun Run is just for you.

The event will be held in Vernon and Kelowna April 19 and all funds will help send local kids with disabilities to Easter Seals Camp Winfield.

“At B.C. Easter Seals Camps, it is our goal to provide safe, fun activities in an environment where the focus is on abilities, not disabilities,” said Rick Harker, Camp Winfield manager.

“All of our camp activities are designed to build confidence, independence and peer interaction in a recreational environment.”

The Easter Seals Splash of Colour Family Fun Run is presented by Century 21 with support from local Lions and Lioness clubs.

“The events in Kelowna and Vernon each require about 150 volunteers on the day,” said event producer Lesley Spiegel.

“We would like to fill the Kelowna and Vernon  sponsorship co-ordinator position and captains for team development, pledges and donations, site, needs, route and colour zones.”

Details and online registration for these and other positions are available at:

“The colour zones offer an excellent opportunity for corporate sponsorship which will allow the organization to place signage at the zone and populate the zone with their staff,” said Spiegel.
