Ben vs. Jordan 10Km Run

Are you ready to witness an epic showdown of athleticism, determination, and sportsmanship? We proudly present the Ben vs. Jordan 10Km Run, a thrilling event that not only promises an exhilarating race but also contributes to a meaningful cause – the Jim Abernathy Challenge! You will have the opportunity to donate to the individual you believe will come out victorious. Unlike the Marsh vs Acera Softball game of last week, you will not be disappointed (Brennan….0 for 6 at the plate….come on man)

7 years ago during the Marsh summer outing we bore witness to the first round of the Ben vs Jordan running competition. On that fateful day Jordan shocked the world winning in fairly convincing fashion. To this day the full moon still haunts Rob Landolt’s memories.

Event Details:
Date: October (Exact date TBD) -> Stay tuned!
Time: High Noon
Location: Stanley Park
Distance: 10 Kilometers

Why You Should Donate:

• Exciting Rivalry: Ben and Jordan, two powerhouse runners, will go head-to-head in an intense battle for victory. Who will emerge as the ultimate champion? The competition is on, and the suspense is palpable!

• Community Spirit: By promoting the event around your respective networks you'll become part of a passionate community dedicated to promoting health, fitness, and camaraderie. Feel the energy of Surrey vs Vancouver in what promises to be an event for the ages.

• Supporting a Worthy Cause: The Ben vs. Jordan 10Km Run is not just about winning the race – it's about making a positive impact. Proceeds from the event will go towards the Jim Abernathy Challenge, an initiative that focuses on contributing to the LLSC's efforts to find cures and improve the quality of life for those impacted by leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma.
