VBIS Selected as Pledge Charity!
VBIS is ecstatic to announce we’ve been selected as one of the 20 charities for the 2012 Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon Charity Pledge Program!
The big race will take place on Sunday, October 7th, which means we have 248 days to get the community involved in this great event.
VBIS will be raising awareness and funds by forming a Walk & Run Team and Cheer Squad. Victorians can support VBIS by donating pledges to the team or individual participants, or by coming out to cheer on the big day!!
Whether you walk, run or cheer, we’d love to have you on our team, so give Anna a call at (250) 598-9339 or e-mail her at email@example.com to sign up!
