Run for L'Arche was started in 2011 and has raised over $400,000 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.
This event is now one of the most popular events on the Calgary race calendar thanks to our enthusiastic volunteers, cool shirts and a race that truly welcomes all levels of participants.
The insurance industry has supported the Run for L’Arche since the beginning and Economical Insurance has been the presenting sponsor since 2011. To promote the race within our industry, awards are given out annually to insurance participants. These awards include fastest broker, fastest underwriter and much more.
We look forward to many amazing Runs for L’Arche in the future and, if you haven’t experienced this one of a kind race, you should make sure and register or volunteer!
