The CCFS has set up a special Canada Helps fund to receive donations for the Fred Bigelow Memorial 100K and any in Fred’s name directed to the Cumberland Community Forest Society during the month of November 2020. We are so grateful to have known Fred and to have experienced his incredible energy, humour, kindness and generosity. His passing is a loss for our entire community. This memorial is a loving tribute.

Fred Bigelow was an athlete. A good friend to many. A strong CVRR member/volunteer. The kind of person that is sorely missed when they’re not there. Fred has joined a growing group of our club members/friends that have passed away over the many years the Road Runners have been together. One of the things Fred was passionate about was his love of the Comox Valley. He promoted it whenever he got the chance. He made every effort throughout his storied military career to be posted here nearer to his family, his roots. Fred was a positive source of energy and enthusiasm that never failed to come up with an ambitious idea.

To honour Fred and promote our beautiful area the CVRR has created this 100K memorial run to held all over the Comox Valley: from Fanny Bay to Oyster River, from Mt Washington to Hornby Island. Participants have the month of November to complete the distance. The proceeds will support Fred’s chosen charities, the CCFS and UROC. Successful 100k participants will receive a hand stamped metal shoe tag with a very unique “Fred’ism” that will forever remind the wearer of this event and this amazing CVRR member.
