Team Volken. We Change Lives!
The John Volken Foundation was established in 2001 by United Furniture Warehouse owner John Volken. In 2004, John sold United Furniture Warehouse and transferred virtually all of his assets in the foundation and devoted his efforts full-time to the Foundation’s charitable programs Lift the Children and the John Volken Academy.
All funds raised by Team Volken in the Rock n Roll Vancouver 1/2 marathon and Cunningham Seawall 10k directly benefit the John Volken Academy, a long-term residential drug and alcohol recovery program and life-skills training centre for young men and women aged 18-34. At the John Volken Academy, residents overcome their addictions, develop strong moral character, advance their education, receive extensive career training, and gain all the tools they need to live successfully as responsible, contributing members of society- for life!
