Getting exercise and raising funds for a good cause? Sounds like a good idea. The UBC Science Undergraduate Society and YNOTFORTOTS UBC are hosting the Trot For TOTS on March 6th at 9 AM! Click the following link to register. The goal is to raise $1000 to donate to the YNOTFORTOTS Society, who helps underprivileged families and schools in the lower mainland.
The run will be around the beautiful and scenic UBC Vancouver campus. The different lengths will range from 1 km (for those who want to take it easy but have fun), 3 km (maybe race your friend?) and 5 km for those who want a challenge! Use this run to help you and your team prep and train for Storm the Wall!
The highest pledge amount will win Canucks tickets. First place for the 1 km will win a tasting flight to Platform 7, winner of 3 km will win a $25 gift card to 4Cats, and 1st place in the 5 km will win a $25 gift card to BaoDown Gastown and $10 gift card to Earnest Ice Cream!
The UBC Psychology Students’ Association has been generous in collecting donations for Lord Strathcona Elementary School! They are currently collecting:
- Bed sheet sets (fitted, flat and pillow cases, 4 of each twin, double, queen).
Boxes have been set up outside of the UBC PSA office (Douglas Kenny Building, room 2007) between 8 AM – 4 PM from November 20th to December 20th, 2016. Please help support the cause with your donations; no donation is too small!
