Active Investments: Our Community in Motion

Stepup logo square 01

Neptune continues to invest in important initiatives that support community health and well-being. We find it even more rewarding when our team members can get involved, like they will for the Climb for Alzheimer’s, which returns to Grouse Mountain on Sunday, September 24. This year the Climb is taking on a new challenge – the BCMC Trail – as well as offering the more accessible Summit Stroll:

We have also partnered with Lions Gate Hospital Foundation in support of their Step Up event for the second year. This fall fundraiser combines fitness and philanthropy in support of Lions Gate Hospital. Participants will raise funds by encouraging their friends and family to make donations to their fundraising page leading up to the in-person walk-a-thon (or run!) on October 15. All ages and fitness levels are welcome. Participants receive a free t-shirt, and there will be giveaways and prizes awarded to top fundraisers.

Offering two, five and 10 kilometre distances from Millenium Park along the West Vancouver seawall, the event promises to be a lot of fun, and supports our community. “Funding from Neptune, and funds raised through the event, will be going directly towards new technology and equipment to support our healthcare workers in providing the best patient care possible,” says Louise Campbell, Vice President of the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation. “We’re looking forward to seeing Neptune’s team in action at the event!”
