When people come together, amazing things happen.

When people come together, amazing things happen.

That’s true whether on a global scale or locally.

For the third consecutive year, Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives (RCRG) organized an event about two things: getting active and getting involved.

Community In Motion, held July 13 at Garry Point Park, was a walk, run or bike in support of Richmond charities. So far, this year’s total has surpassed $17,751.

“It’s nice to see everyone come together,” says Jocelyn Wong, general manager at RCRG. “It’s all about learning about the community and the resources, enjoying a walk or bike ride, and chilling.”

While there was no fee to partake in Community in Motion, participants were encouraged to each make a minimum $1 donation. The money raised is divided among the participating non-profit organizations.

Meant to be a family-friendly event, many groups from the Richmond Public Library (leading a storytelling walk around Garry Point Park) to the Richmond Child Care Resource & Referral Centre, Family Services of Greater Vancouver, Richmond School District, City of Richmond’s Physical Literacy Program and Vancouver Coastal Health (all serving up fun activities).

During the past two years, Community In Motion has raised almost $60,000 for Richmond charities. You can still add to the remarkable total by donating to this year’s campaign at rcrg.org.
