CHIP WILSON, the founder of Lululemon Athletica is starting a charity initiative of his own. On Friday June 20th, Chip will be hosting his first annual 1-mile run/walk/parade up West 10th avenue, from Alma Street to Blanca Street with the goal of raising 1.5million dollars over three years for the BC Children’s Hospital. The first wave starts at 6pm.
Register online at Chip’s Not Dead Yet. Registration fee is $25 per person, but you are given a Lululemon technical souvenir top worth $35. As an added incentive, Chip will match your registration, dollar for dollar.
If you just want to watch the festivities, here’s another way you can help out: with an expected event attendance of 1000+ people, they are still looking for volunteers for this event. So if you want to help with registration, set-up, tear-down, awards and timing, email Alison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the end of the race, participants will enjoy the After Party Festivities along West 10th Ave with food, beverage and live entertainment.
