Run for L'Arche was started in 2011 and has raised over $300,000 for L’Arche Calgary’s homes and programs for adults with developmental disabilities. 

The Run for L’Arche was started by a group of Rogers Insurance employees after they traveled to France to participate in a marathon and had the opportunity to meet Jean Vanier, the founder of L’Arche. Their visit inspired them to organize a half marathon to raise funds to support the L’Arche Calgary community.
