On October 6, 2023, BC REALTOR® Jayden Lee is set to run 162 km to raise $150,000 for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.   

Jayden was not always a serious runner, but the determination to give back to his community motivated him to get out of his comfort zone and go the distance for children receiving treatment at BC Children’s Hospital. 

When he was 16 years old, Jayden was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and started his years-long journey with cancer. This year marks five years since Jayden’s last chemotherapy treatment and on October 6 at 3 pm, he will have his last check-up at BC Children’s Hospital, closing out a transformative chapter in his life. To celebrate that, Jayden will run 162 km back to his home in Chilliwack after his appointment and has set a goal to raise $150,000 for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.  

Earlier this week, BCREA CEO Trevor Koot sat down with Jayden to learn more about Jayden’s remarkable journey and how other REALTORS® can help support the cause. Take a look: 

This is not the first time that Jayden has found ways to give back to the hospital that saved his life and inspire kids who are still fighting for theirs. On October 2, 2021, Jayden held a fundraiser and ran 103 km from Chilliwack to the BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and raised over $125,000.  

We encourage REALTORS® from across the province to answer Jayden’s call to action and help him reach his fundraising goal of $150,000. Your support will make a meaningful impact to help BC Children’s Hospital provide transforming care to kids with cancer.
