Lace Up for the Kids

In the past five years, UBC students have helped raise over $200,000 for BC Children’s Hospital through the Lace Up for Kids fundraiser. This fun annual event brings students together to skate 50,000 laps of the Doug Mitchell Winter Sports Centre, and raises money for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation in support of the Rare Disease Foundation and Rare Disease/Translational Research.
