Run for your life - and your neighbour's - at the annual St. Paddy's Day Run to raise money for much-needed medical equipment at Eagle Ridge Hospital.
The annual run, or walk, happens this Sunday beginning at 8:30 a.m. with a 1-km kids' run, followed by a 5-km run or walk open to everyone at 9 a.m.
Both "fun races" begin and end in front of Port Moody city hall.
The annual run regularly draws upwards of 300 participants from across the region, typically raising over $4,000 a year for the hospital.
Registration for the run is $20 for the 5-km run, $5 for the 1-km run, and raffles of running gear and a Whistler vacation are scheduled for after the races. Free parking for the event is available at the Port Moody Recreation Complex and in Newport Village.
