Welcome Back & Looking ahead to 2021!
We are delighted to announce our 11th Annual Rogers Insurance Run for L'Arche Event, to take place March 27, 2021!
For those who have been on the journey with us, or are new to our important fund raising event, Rogers Insurance helped found a mixed Run/Walk Event in 2011 in conjunction with Economical Insurance our "Presenting Sponsor" since inception, and continues to coordinate and lead the Race, in one of the most popular early spring season 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, L'Arche supports five homes, a Supported Independent Living Program, and a Tamarak Day Program. L'Arche Calgary creates a community with over 100 people, including 33 core members with disabilities.
L'Arche Calgary is partnered with 30 Homes across Canada, and is part of serving 153 Communities and 21 Community Programs, in 38 Countries on 5 Continents.
Traditionally we have provided Certified Half Marathon, 10km & 5Km Distances, here on the City of Calgary Pathways System, not forgetting our 1Km Fun Snowman's Run and Obstacle Course.

Event Volunteer Opportunities.
In past years you, our 200 plus core supporters have enabled to ensure all our Event successes.
This year we are needing fewer positions for the In-Person Event Day - Saturday March 27, 2021 and will include:
Event Venue - Set Up & Break Down & Greeters only.
Limited Course Marshalls & Cyclists.
New Position - Ambassadors!
A new approach for us - even if you are not a runner and can't make it to volunteer we still need your vital support,
Consider registering as an Ambassador- individual donations make a difference, you can support a participant or build a team of fund raisers.
We will be drawing for great prizes to recognize the various results be they large or small. Every dollar counts!
Our Ambassador & Social Media Coordinator will support you every step of the way.
It takes a village to make a successful event and that includes Sponsors! We have a variety of sponsorship levels available from $250- $2,500.
Should your organization wish to consider participating, for more information please contact us at:
Thank you once more to our Participants, Volunteers, L'Arche Calgary Community, Sponsors and employees, friends, family and general public for your ongoing support in these uncertain times.
