KAMLOOPS — It may not look like it outside, but spring is ten days away, and that means it's almost time for CFJC's TV's Boogie the Bridge. 

This year's run takes place April 30th, with participation growing from 68 people in its first year to to just under 3,000 in 2016.

Participants can sign up for a 1K 'Mini Boogie' for young ones, as well a one, five, ten, or 21-kilometre run.

Organizer Jo Berry says the charity event is catered to all athletic abilities.

"It's really about community health and happiness, there's a pace for everyone," said Berry. "We do a huge amount of fundraising, we've raised over $1 million dollars for the community. It's about empowering people to come out and do things they never thought they could."

Proceeds from this year's event go toward the United Way and Kamloops Arts Council therapy courses.
