Operation Red Nose Runs – Fundraiser By Delta Gymnastics
December 22, 2018 @ 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 22, 2018
Every year, DGS organizes and manages Operation Red Nose’s Delta/Richmond region. It’s an enormous undertaking involving more than 350 volunteers, but it’s an important community service – as well as a major fundraiser – that delivers holidaymakers safely to their doors.
Our mission is to make sure that anyone who has been drinking, or is too tired, does not drive. We hope that by offering a completely safe, free, and confidential way to get home, lives will be saved on our roads. 2017, our 16th year of hosting the program, we provided almost 400 safe rides to party-goers in Delta and Richmond. Our teams drove just under 13,000 kilometers and we raised almost $13,000 from tips and donations all for the kids!
The money is raised through sponsorships from businesses and tips from grateful users. It allows us to purchase new equipment for the gym that is used by everyone from parents and toddlers in our drop-in program, to school field trips, to gymnasts training for competition.
What is Operation Red Nose?
It’s a National Safe Drive program that raises money for amateur sport all across Canada. But more importantly, it’s a program that gets drivers home safely during the holiday season. For more information, please visit the Operation Red Nose website.
From 9pm – 3am
