Hello, my name is Sandra Parsons.

Almost 2 years ago, on July 25, 2015, I lost my husband Rob Maar in a tragic motorcycle accident.

Rob was a true adventurer with a real zest for life. He was passionate about many things and was known for his big heart, boisterous personality and camaraderie among his peers, friends/clients and fellow realtors around the community. For many years we, as Captains of the Re/Max Re/Trax Team participated in the '24 Hour Relay' for Easter Seals raising thousands of dollars to help local children.

Rob loved the 24 Hour Relay and what it stood for, raising money to ensure sick children could enjoy a better quality of life through summer camp experiences, was always at the forefront of his mind when taking part. Inspired by this, I had decided to create an annual event in Rob’s memory called the 24 Minute Run raising funds to support Zajac Ranch for Children. Zajac Ranch, located on the shores of Stave Lake, in Mission, B.C. is a non profit organization that provides summer camp experiences for children and young adults with life threatening illnesses and disabilities.

The 2nd annual event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 9th, 2017 at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam, from Noon to 3 P.M. It is meant to be an easy walk/run around the perimeter of Lafarge Lake. It starts out on Pinetree Way, just north of the Evergreen Cultural Centre where we will have lots of music, games, hot dogs, fitness lessons, massages and face painting by donation, etc.

Zajac Ranch for Children provides camps for children and young adults with chronic, life-threatening and/or debilitating conditions. These experiences give participants the opportunity to explore the outdoors while developing greater social and environmental awareness, increased self-confidence and positive growth in attitudes towards physical activity.

We are suggesting a donation of $25 per person to participate. At that level, you're also eligible for a t-shirt to commemorate the event and show your support!
