For the second year, JIBC is participating in the Vancouver Scotiabank Half-Marathon & 5k Charity Challenge and we need you to join us. Last year we raised over $10,000 in much-needed funds for awards, scholarships and bursaries for JIBC students. This year we are aiming to raise $15,000, and 100% of the funds raised by our team support JIBC.
