AbbyPD Heroes Ninja Challenge ready to roll

Obstacle course fundraiser for Special Olympics BC occurs in Abbotsford on June 1

The Abbotsford Police Department is challenging the public to a unique debut event on Saturday, June 1.

The first-ever AbbyPD Heroes Ninja Challenge invites competitors of all ages and abilities to join local first responders for a four-kilometre run with 10 obstacles along the way.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Special Olympics BC in support of athletes in Abbotsford and \across the province.

The course kicks off at Bradner Elementary (5291 Bradner Rd.), and racers will run approximately 1.3 km to a rural property, complete five fitness challenges along a 1.3 km trail system and then run the final 1.3 km back to the school.

The family-friendly event is open to everyone, and families who have younger children or people with physical disabilities will be able to participate on a modified course.

Interested participants can check out the event’s Facebook page at facebook.com/events/993454031044151, which will be posting previews of some of the obstacles for the race.

The event costs $40 for adults, $15 for youth ages four to 18, $20 for seniors, $100 for a family of four or $10 for a Special Olympics athlete.

Prices go up by $5 after May 25.

The registration fee includes a T-shirt. For more information on registration, visit events.com and search AbbyPD Heroes Ninja Challenge.
