We’re very excited to finally launch vBase - our own module for all the run participants where they can showcase their profiles, their updates, and their personal fundraising goals! Our supporters will be able to see what the volunteers have been up to, give them hi5’s to encourage them, and of course, support the participants by donating directly towards the participants’ individual goals, and help them win some great prizes, while helping our overall cause of “children helping children”!

As a run participant, you can set up a new account yourself (if you don’t have one already), and set up your own profile and fundraising goals, once you get approval from the administrators, share your profile via facebook, email or twitter, and be on your way to win some great prizes (to be announced shortly!).

Don’t miss out - anyone can sign up and help us raise funds for our cause! The run begins in two weeks, and we need your help to make sure we reach our goal of not only reaching Vancouver, but also of collecting $110,000 (and hopefully more!), to help kids in hospitals across Canada, as well as in Liberia, Africa!
