Silent run supports deaf, hard-of-hearing

Nanaimo will play host to the B.C. Deaf Sports Federation’s Silent Walk and Run fundraiser, 2 p.m. Saturday (June 4) at Maffeo Sutton Park.

Participants have a choice of walking, running, cycling or skating a five- or 10-kilometre route along the E&N Trail.

Deaf, hard-of-hearing, hearing parents, sign language students, families, friends and even pets are welcome.

Pledge money raised supports deaf and hard-of-hearing athletes with training, coaching, equipment and interpreting fees.
