For the first time, Concrete Hero, the ultimate urban obstacle challenge, is coming to Vancouver. An event to raise funds and awareness for BC Cancer Foundation, Concrete Hero is a great way for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause and have fun doing it.
Concrete Hero is the ultimate urban obstacle challenge, helping to raise money and awareness for BC Cancer Foundation (BCCF). People of all ages and athletic abilities will challenge themselves in a unique, urban obstacle adventure through the streets and alleyways of downtown Vancouver. Leap over parked cars in the “Lions Gate” traffic jam from hell, scale the “Chief” with thousands of your closest friends, swing your way over the “Lost Lagoon” without falling in and come face-to-face with the city’s elements like you’ve always wanted during this 7 km chip-timed course.
It takes strength in numbers to change the future of healthcare. Philanthropy is the fuel that keeps the BC Cancer Agency’s research engine running, and the money raised through Concrete Hero directly funds the work of the Agency throughout B.C. This makes all Heroes partners in discovery. With philanthropy and research working together, BCCF can achieve their vision of a world free from cancer.
Concrete Hero is not just for extreme athletes or gym-junkies, it’s for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause and have a ton of fun while doing it!
