How You Can Contribute To Lace Up for Kids 2017




Lace Up For Kids is an event put on by UBC REC every year in support of BC Children’s Hospital and the Rare Disease Foundation. All the money that is raised goes straight into funding research on rare diseases. You have the power to change a child’s life. There are plenty of ways to contribute to this worthwhile cause, and five great ones are outlined below.

Make a donation.

Big or small, any donation that you make will have a positive impact. The donation page will be open all year, but please consider making a donation now!


Attend our fundraising events.

Clubs and organizations across campus are helping to raise money for this cause as part of LACE UP PALOOZA! UBC Improv is having a show, CVC is hosting a poker night – there are so many opportunities to make a small donation and have fun while you’re it. There is an event for everybody, so pick the ones that interest you, grab some friends, and have a great time!
