canucks autism network charity try events

Canucks Autism Network (CAN) was founded in 2008 in response to the need for accessible, adaptive sports and recreational programs for children living with autism in BC. The organization began with just one soccer program in 2008, and has since grown to be one of the recognized provincial and national leaders in providing adapted sports and recreational programming for individuals on the autism spectrum. Annually, we currently provide more than 25 program options to over 4,000 individuals living with autism and their families throughout BC. In addition to providing community-level support throughout BC, CAN delivers training and education opportunities while promoting autism awareness, acceptance and understanding in communities across the province. With 1 in 68 children being diagnosed with autism, more than 11,000 in BC alone, the demand for our programs continues to grow.

Route High Lights
This beautiful 21.1K & 7 Mile course circles Burnaby lake, giving you the opportunity to enjoy fresh air, exercise and more chances to view birds and animals in this wilderness environment. Join other walkers & runners on this scenic course throughout the trails of Burnaby Lake.

Located in the middle of the city, Burnaby Lake Regional Park is a stunning wildlife sanctuary. The lake was created by a glacier 12,000 years ago and its shores were home to sawmills in the late 1800's.

If you have participated in the Rubber Ducky Half Marathon you know the route BUT for this race we will run around the lake in the opposite direction! Which direction will you get your personal best time?
