“Helping Kids Shine – Walk or Run and Roll” is an annual fundraising event for Fraser Valley Child Development Centre.  The Fraser Valley Child Development Centre (FVCDC) has provided services to enhance the quality of life for children with developmental needs since 1982.  The organization reaches out to children at facilities located in Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, and Hope.  They also visit schools, client homes and community centres to serve families as far as Boston Bar, Agassiz, and Harrison.  These centres provide wide range of services to children whose development is delayed or who are at risk. The child may be experiencing difficulty with physical movement, reasoning or problem solving tasks, or emotional issues. Their third annual family friendly, wheelchair accessible walkathon, “Helping Kids Shine, Run, Walk and Roll”,   took place at the Sardis secondary track in Chilliwack, BC on June 23 from 9 a.m. to noon.  Participants had options of a 1 km walk ‘n’ roll, or a 5 km fun run.  The event also featured a children carnival with face painting, bouncy castle, mini golf and a Children’s Concert.  The Children’s Oral Care Centre strongly supports the missions of the Fraser Valley Development Centre and was proud to a be sponsor for this event in the past few years.  All proceeds raised from this event is to support children and families with developmental needs.  To learn more about this event or the services of the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre, please visit:  http://www.fvcdc.org
