British Columbia, Canada -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2013 -- Global initiative Run for Tomorrow (R4T) will host ‘A Night of Healthy Living’ on April 13, 2013 at Braefoot Community Association to raise awareness and funds in support of its upcoming 200-day, non-stop, 30+ countries relay-style marathon around the world led by a team of 10 elite marathoners from seven different countries. The open-market style community event will bring together local food vendors, musicians, and health and wellness companies for a late afternoon and evening of good food, good company and a good cause.
