Run Up for Down Syndrome 2017 and Hot Dog BBQ

For the past three years, Artisan Farmers’ Market Society has put its resources to good work, for a good cause, the Run Up for Down Syndrome 2017. This year, for the first time ever, Artisan Farmers’ Market Society will be manning the BBQs, cooking up hot dogs for the crowd.Sunday, June 4th at SFU

The event will take place at SFU’s University City on Burnaby Mountain on Sunday, June 4th.

For 21 years, the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, based in Burnaby, has held the Run Up for Down Syndrome 2017. The fundraiser touches the hearts of many, including those who have been touched by someone with Down syndrome, and even some of our team and membership. It’s a significant fundraiser for the DSRF and a great event worth attending.

Donations to the cause, of any size, will be accepted at the event. Last year, one of our regular market goers, Mary Cardle, held a baking fundraiser at the Burnaby Artisan Farmer’s Market. Another patron of the market was so touched, they made a significant four figure donation to the Run Up For Down Syndrome! Word has it the anonymous donor made a similar donation again this year!
