Church in the Valley (CIV) outreach Pastor Dauncey doesn’t usually show up an on a Sunday in full-on 80’s garb, including a fake mullet, headband, stone-washed jeans and Miami Vice shirt.
But on this day, the costumed pastor was in good company.
There was also a one-eyed pirate, an “unknown runner” with a paper bag mask clearly modeled on the infamous “unknown comic” of the original Gong show, and even a few dogs in pre-Halloween costumes.
It was the third annual acts of kindness (AOK) fun run fundraiser staged by the CIV, the Seventh-Day Adventist Church located on the 23600 block of Fraser Highway in Langley, and Peninsula Runners.
“We like to dress up to make it a fun occasion,” Dauncey said.
“(It’s) just a fun event.”
Entry fees were by donation.
The weather was perfect, sunny and warm, and about 60 people turned out to participate in the run and barbecue that followed.
