RACING EVENTS

 

JOIN OUR TEAM

Recreation Integration Victoria (RIV) is an approved charity for the Times Colonist Charity Pledge Program in the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon. RIV is looking for runners, wheelchair athletes, and walkers to join team Equalizers to support our charity.

Know that when you cross that finish line on October 13th, you've assisted us in creating equity in our community and improving the quality of life of people with disabilities.

Not a runner? You can still join the team to support the Equalizers! Contact us to find out how you can help.

Talk to your friends, family, and associates about joining the Equalizers or pledging their support to Recreation Integration Victoria.

ABOUT EQUALIZERS

In 2012, the Equalizers raised almost $10,000. This was enough for us to provide 20 weeks of 1:1 assistance to children and youth with disabilities so they could attend generic community parks and recreation programs. Through your efforts this year, the Equalizers will surpass last year's goal and set a goal to raise $15,000 to support the inclusion of children and youth with disabilities in community-based leisure and recreation services and our volunteer program.

Each Equalizer team member will receive a training shirt to identify you as a member of our team and be eligible for draw prizes at the end of the race. We encourage friends and family members of all our participants to pledge RIV and join us on race day to cheer the team on!
