Boat for Hope 2020

Due to COVID-19 and the restrictions put in place by the BC Health Authorities, it will not be possible to host the traditional Boat for Hope event in 2020. The revised event will take place in the rooftop parking lot of Coquitlam Centre on Saturday September 12th, 2020, with each corner of the lot decorated as a “Treasure Island”.
Families will be invited to drive through the event from the comfort of their own vehicles while the children receive loot bags. Pre-packaged, non-perishable refreshments will be provided to families as a replacement for the event’s usual “Land Event BBQ”. Driving the full course will take roughly 15 minutes and your full experience (including registration) at the event should take no more than one hour.

A sub-committee has been created to ensure all measures are taken to ensure the health and safety of all attendees. This group is working closely with the BC Centre for Disease Control to stay up to date with the frequently updated regulations and the full event plan has been approved by Fraser Health and the City of Coquitlam.

Through the generous support of local skippers, the business community, and amazing volunteers, we are very excited to once again be able to provide a memorable day to BC’s kids with special needs!

Coquitlam Centre – 2929 Barnet Hwy, Coquitlam, BC V3B 5R5
