Last July, avid runner and Victoria Hospitals Foundation supporter, Yana Hempler ran 10 marathons in 10 days to raise funds for our It’s Critical campaign to nearly double critical care capacity at Royal Jubilee Hospital. Yana surpassed her fundraising goal of $10,000 and raised an incredible $35,000!
If running 10 marathons in 10 days wasn’t hard enough, Yana has embarked on an incredible running journey to continue raising funds for our hospitals greatest needs. Throughout the month of May 2021, Yana will attempt to run a marathon every day to complete her challenge of running 30 marathons in 30 days! Yana will begin each day between 6-7 am and run a 42km stretch along the Galloping Goose Trail between Tillicum Road and Saanich Road, making this event challenging both physically and mentally.
