John Volken Foundation
Run with a Purpose The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is more than a race. It’s a rockin’ run with bands along the route, thousands of cheering fans and a post race concert. When you register and run and fundraise with TEAM VOLKEN, you are benefiting the John Volken Academy and Lift the Children. Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this annual event. Live bands perform a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul every couple kilometers along the race course. This event sells out at 12,500 runners and walkers. By supporting Team Volken in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Oasis Vancouver Half Marathon & Cunningham Seawall 10K, you not only help The John Volken Academy rebuild lives from the ground up, by providing relevant life-skills training and job-skills development, you also help Lift the Children to provide necessities, training and inspiration to 10,000 plus children in more than 80 orphanages in Africa.
