The Vertical Slam Ultimate Challenge Society held the Sadownik Miles for Smiles virtual run in June, in honour of Steve Sadownik, who died in 2018. The run brought in $800, which was used to buy $100 gift cards to grocery stores for patients at the Fort St. John Hospital's Community Cancer Centre. 

Laurie Cardinal of the Vertical Slam Society dropped off the gift cards yesterday, July 27. 

After being rescheduled multiple times, the Vertical Slam Ultimate Challenge will be back as a live, in-person event on September 11, 2021. The 2020 challenge was held virtually.
