When: April 19 – May 29 (40 days!)

Where: Living rooms, driveways, and outdoor spaces across British Columbia

Fundraising goal: $20,000 - average cost to support 4 Beneficiaries (2021 Beneficiary stories)

  • On average 4km is equal to 40 minutes
  • In 40 days, you could log 160 kms or 26.6 hours of exercise!

*We know some of you are natural-born athletes but for those of us that prefer buns of cinnamon to buns of steel… we’ll meet you just above average! Mmm…cinnamon!

What is the BC Hospitality Foundation?

A registered charity that raises funds to support those in the hospitality industry facing a financial crisis due to a health condition to themselves or a family member.

In addition, we offer a scholarship program to foster the development of the next generation of workers and industry leaders.

Why is this important?

1. Liquor and Hospitality is the 4th largest private-sector employer in British Columbia

2. 190,000+ workers employed every year

3. Hundreds of hospitality workers across BC face medical-related financial challenges and have nowhere to turn.

5 Reasons to Support BCHF

1. Over $1 Million raised to help beneficiaries since 2008

2. The only charity of its kind in Canada

3. NOT government-funded

4. Help those when they need it most - quick access to funds

5. Identify future leaders through our scholarship program
