We are thrilled and deeply honoured to share with you that the Sarah Beckett Memorial Run 2023 is investing in the future of our community by supporting BGC South Vancouver Island’s (BGCSVI) youth outreach work. It’s an incredible opportunity to make a difference in the lives of at-risk youth who need our support now more than ever.
RCMP Constable Sarah Beckett, a devoted police officer and mother of two young boys, was tragically killed by an impaired driver while on duty serving and protecting her community. Sarah’s passion for safeguarding her community and especially for protecting children was unwavering. Sarah’s memory lives on through the 2023 Sarah Beckett Memorial Run which will honour her legacy and support our BGCSVI youth outreach programs.
BGC South Vancouver Island knows that Opportunity Changes Everything! With every young person we help, we make a positive impact and potentially save lives, including those of our brave police officers. Your support for the Sarah Beckett Memorial Run will empower BGCSVI’s youth outreach program to continue its life-changing work. Together, we can save lives by preventing even one tragedy like the one that ended Sarah’s life.
Get ready to lace up your running shoes and join us on May 13, 2023, for the Sarah Beckett Memorial Run! This family-friendly event will follow a 5km route starting and ending at Starlight Stadium in Langford. Come out, have fun, and embrace the power of opportunity to make transformative change happen, one step, one run, one donation and one youth at a time.
