Run with PIRS at the Vancouver Half Marathon!

Run with PIRS at the Vancouver Half Marathon!

Pacific Immigrant Resources Society (PIRS) will once again be participating in the Vancouver Half Marathon! With B.C. experiencing record-high population growth with International migration accounting for nearly all growth from July 2022-2023 (98%), because of a high number of immigrants (468,817) and an increase in the number of non-permanent residents (+697,701). It’s more important than ever to support immigrant and refugee women and their children as they settle into their new communities (Statistics Canada).

In response to this increasing demand, PIRS is mobilizing resources to offer free, inclusive and accessible Community English classes designed with a trauma-informed approach, alongside leadership development training. These initiatives are pivotal in empowering immigrant and refugee women to secure employment opportunities and thrive within society.

Join them on June 23rd for a fun-filled day of running and community spirit! Choose from:

 Half Marathon(90% of seats are already filled!)
– 5K (only 50% of seats left!)
– Kids Run
– Hybrid Three Peat (in-person 21K, virtual 10K, virtual 5K)
