S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation‘s 39th annual Walk with the Dragon celebration returns to Stanley Park on July 14!

What is it: This annual walkathon is a fundraiser for S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’s programs. This year’s goal is to raise $375,000 for the organization’s programs for families, youth, women, and seniors.

  • Leading the walk is a 100-foot dragon, which is the longest in North America. Participants can choose between the three or seven kilometre walk through Stanley Park.
  • There’s also a family-friendly fairground with live music, entertainment, activities, giveaways, prizes, carnival games and photo booths.

If you go: The walk and festivities begin at Lumbermen’s Arch in Stanley Park, which is about a six-minute walk from the bus loop.

  • Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 9 a.m.
  • The live music and entertainment starts at 10 a.m. and concludes at 12:30 p.m.
