Sunshine is excited to be teaming up with BMO Financial Group and the Running Room to help fulfill dreams for Canadian kids living with severe disabilities or life threatening illnesses at the 23rd Annual BMO Okanagan Marathon, October 7th and 8th at City Park in Kelowna.  

  • Run along scenic Okanagan Lake and finish at City Park as spectators cheer you on! Runners and walkers of all stripes will enjoy fast times on this Boston Marathon qualifying course that is one of Canada’s flatter and faster courses.
  • Be sure to visit Sunshine at the Sports Expo at City Park throughout the weekend. Get your photo taken with Sunshine Bear!
  • The Family Festival Weekend is a fun festive event that brings families together during the BMO ABC Kid’s Activities and the BMO ABC Kids Run, where families enjoy active family time together.

Interested in volunteering as a member of the Sunshine Spirit Squad to help cheer on the runners and walkers?  It is a lot of fun and you will be helping out an amazing charity!  
Please contact volunteer [at] before the end of September for more details.
