Have fun, get some exercise and support an important Port Coquitlam non-profit.

That’s the goal of the second annual Fremont 5KM Fun Run set to kick off on the morning of June 12.

Participants will jog a scenic route along the Traboulay PoCo Trail and the Fremont Village neighbourhood with proceeds to benefit the Tri-City Transitions Society.

The event is organized Permack and Associates, a team of local Realtors, who have strong ties to the community. 

Sonia Lagiglia, a Port Coquitlam resident who works with real estate clients in the area, says the run is a terrific community event and all are welcome.

"The run is the perfect way to bring the community together while being active and enjoying the beauty of Port Coquitlam's longest trail," Lagiglia stated in a news release.

Permack and Associates team leader and founder, Rebecca Permack, will be donating 100 per cent  of the proceeds from the run back to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, which directly benefits the Tri-City Transitions Society.

The Tri-City Transitions Society — based in Port Coquitlam — provides essential services to women and children who are victims of domestic violence. 

"All of the fundraising we do benefits the Tri-City Transitions Society, and we are so proud to be in the top one per cent of donors this year to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation," stated Permack. 

The Fremont 5KM was established in 2021, but due to COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings, it was held virtually. 

This year’s event will be held in person, and will include a morning stretch and snacks from Function Health Club and a wrap up party at Provincial Spirits. 

It begins at 11 a.m. and wraps up at 1:30 p.m.

“Port Coquitlam is known for its great outdoor events, like the Car Show, The Poco Grand Prix and even May Days. The run is a perfect addition to that lineup,” stated Eric Dove, a real estate agent with Permack and Associates.

“We’re very excited to host it in person this year, and look forward to it growing over the years.”

Tickets are available through EventBrite, and are $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12. 

The entry fee includes a finisher’s medal, a beverage from Provincial Spirits and a donation to The RLP Shelter Foundation.
