BC Child Run for Childhood Cancer 2013 Sponsored by the Wilson Family

This is the volunteer t-shirt that I got when I volunteered for the BC Child Run for Childhood Cancer 2013. This is an event that is sponsored by the Wilson family, Lululemon founder Chip and his wife Shannon. I always try to volunteer for these charities.

Here is a photo from the race brochure. If you look closely, on the right hand side, you can see Chip (with his hand waving) and Shannon Wilson beside him. If you or your team raises a certain level, you get recognized on stage with the Wilsons.

Here are some photos from the event. It is a really amazing event for families, lots of fun things for the kids to do after the race and it raises a lot of funds for a worthy charity, childhood cancer.

Lululemon Brown Racerback tank Chip’s (Wilson) Not Dead Memorial Mile Top 007

This is a brown racerback tank that I got from the Chip Wilson’s Not Dead Memorial Mile race. The mile course was pretty much uphill on West 10th Avenue on the west side of Vancouver. The race course was not too far from the West 4th Kitsilano Lululemon store.

The Chip’s Not Dead Yet was a charity race for BC Children’s Hospital that was sponsored by Lululemon’s founder, Chip Wilson. As far as I remember, it was only put on for a few years. It was fun because they had different costume categories such as super heroes, brides, etc.

I remember volunteering one year and passing out race packets days before the actual race. The volunteers were upstairs in the West 4th Avenue Kitsilano Lululemon store. I remember that it was really hot up there!

In addition to be a family friendly fun run, I think people signed up because they knew they’d get this nice tank top!

I really like the fabric of this tank. It is made of 97% polyester and 3% x-static and silver nylon. It has a nice silky feel to it. As you can see, I did not rip out the tag.

It is a nice light brownish olive green color with bright lime threads. It has the racerback with the omega symbol in the middle.

The Chip’s Not Dead Yet coffin is a dark yellow. When Chip Wilson was on the news, he mentioned that BC Children’s Hospital was their charity of choice because of the many times he had taken his kids there with sports and play injuries over the years and how they always got great care there.

Unfortunately, this race seemed to end a couple of years ago. The Wilson family had sponsored some other charity race after that, but it was a lot more low key. Who knows, maybe they’ll bring it back again!
