Larry Nicholas 9K

Larry Nicholas Memorial X-Country 9K
4K Fun Run & Strong Kids Fun Run

October 30th, 2016 - Kelowna, BC


Larry Nicholas died in a tragic mountain climbing accident in 1983. Larry was employed with Kelowna Recreation Services until his untimely death. It was Larry’s hopes as well as our own that Kelowna youth and adults become physically active by enjoying an outdoor pursuit of their choice. This memorial run, which is also part of the Interior X-Country Series, can be enjoyed by running, jogging or merely walking. Proceeds go to the Larry Nicholas Memorial Bursary, which is presented each year to a graduating high school student and to Strong Kids Campaign, which provides financial assistance to youth in our community so they can participate in leadership programs and recreational experiences at the Y.
