NOCLS 24 Hour Fun Run

We at NOCLS are grateful for your past support and invite you to once again be a part of this year’s major fundraiser: the 1st ever NOCLS 24-Hour Fun Run!

May 12 – 13

At the Vernon Curling & Athletic Club
3400 39 Ave, Vernon, BC

Starting at 5pm on Friday, May 12th to 5pm on Saturday, May 13th, teams of 10 will come together for 24 hours of physical activity fun at the Vernon Curling Rink! The main purpose is twofold: to raise money for the NOCLS and have a super FUN event for all participants.

Each team consists of a Team Captain and 9 other participants (10 people total). Each team member is required to raise a minimum of $200.00 prior to the event with awards being presented to the individual and team that raise the most money.

Each team member will also receive a complimentary Fun Run t-shirt, dinner, breakfast and lunch. Also included is a Friday night dance, volleyball tournament, beer pong, Frisbee, water fights and many other activities to ensure your team has 24 hours of straight FUN!

How it works: One team member must run the designated route for 24 hours straight while the others party and cheer them on! You may take turns between members, as long as someone on the team is running for the entire duration of the event.

All proceeds raised will go to support the North Okanagan Community Life Society. The NOCLS works with families to develop a plan for their son or daughter to help explore options from present living arrangements to a good life like any typical person experiences. Our services also include assessment of needs, funding, navigating, budgeting, process support and ongoing support.


Please contact NOCLS at 250-545-5153 as soon as possible to confirm your participation in this year’s event.

The NOCLS 24-Hour Fun Run will make a difference. Please join us in supporting our community and those who live in it!

About The Team Captain


The Team Captain is the major contact between NOCLS and their team.
The Team Captain gets a team of 10 participants.
Each participant must raise a minimum of $200.00.

The donations are not based on pledges but on actual dollars received (eg. Someone may say I will pledge a dollar a lap – say I will be running 100 laps and get the $100.00 – pledges are difficult to follow-up on).

Team Captains are encouraged to get their teams motivated to collect as many donations as possible.

Revenue Canada tax receipts will be issued for pledges $20.00 and more.

The Team Captain collects all the donations from each participant and turns the money to the NOCLS Volunteers.

Team Captains are encouraged to get their team to dress up.

Team Captains are encouraged to host a team meeting. A NOCLS committee member will attend the gathering to share what the event is about, motivate them and share where the money will be spent that they raise.

Team Captains are encouraged to get the team to do a skit – however they choose but generally with music.

A package will be given to each Team Captain which will have 10 team numbers, 10 wristbands, 10 tee shirts and a baton.

The Team Captain is responsible for distribution of the items to each participant.

The Team Captain arranges the walk/run schedule.

The Team Captain gets every participant to sign the waiver and gives them to NOCLS.

There are awards for ‘The Most Money Raised’, Individual who raised the most Money, Team Spirit Award, Team with most laps.

The Team Captain is responsible for each participant – particularly their behavior and alcohol!
