Vancouver — Walk with the Dragon, one of the anchor fundraising events for immigrant and community non-profit SUCCESS, will take place this year on July 17 at Stanley Park, officials said Friday.
This year’s walk, which draws about 13,000 participants annually, will be the first to include a “radiothon” on AM1320, where stories about SUCCESS’s programs will be played on Saturday, July 16 from 8 a.m. to midnight to encourage donors to donate. A “Kids Zone” will also be included for the first time to cater to younger participants.
The festivities will start at 8:30 a.m. at Lumbermen’s Arch, and organizers are aiming to raise $450,000 ($50,000 higher than last year’s goal) for programs not supported by federal and provincial grants.
