Race Jerry the Moose at this year’s Salmon Run

Annual 5K event helps raise funds for educational programs at Goldstream Nature House

B.C. Parks mascot Jerry the Moose gets ready to race from the start line with the other runners at last year’s Goldstream Salmon Run 5K. This year's event happens this Saturday (Oct. 18)

B.C. Parks’ mascot Jerry the Moose will be among the runners at this year’s Goldstream Salmon Run 5K this Saturday (Oct. 18), helping to raise funds for the educational programs offered at the Goldstream Nature House.

This is Jerry’s third year running, and he’s hoping to win the spot for ‘top moose’ yet again, and inspire his fellow racers to give it their all through the hilly terrain of Goldstream park.

For those who don’t feel the need to compete against a moose, walkers with baby joggers or leashed dogs, and all other participants are welcome to join the race.

The race begins at 10 a.m. All proceeds go toward supporting the Goldstream Nature House and the Salmon Run education programs for school children.

Register online at raceonline.ca/events/details/?id=741. For more information, call the Goldstream Nature House at 250-478-9414 or email goldstream@naturehouse.ca.
