Help Jessica raise money

For participating in 2020 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K

My Story…

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2014, and joined the Canadian Celiac Association British Columbia in 2015 as a Board Member. I have enjoyed my time on the Board of Directors immensely, and was nominated as President in 2020. While COVID-19 has brought about uncertain times, we have an interesting opportunity to host our run "virtually" this year. My hope is that this will allow runners across British Columbia to join our team, whereas the event has historically been restricted to Lower Mainland residents. I hope everyone enjoys their run from their own neighbourhood, and stays safe!
