What is All in a Day
Many of us live a diverse lifestyle here in Vancouver. We are active, we like the outdoors, we like good food, we like to dance, we like to change the world. All in a Day is a celebration of our lifestyle and of the best city on earth.
What events are involved
In past events we included snowshoeing and boarding, but due to lack of snow this year, we are making it a summer party. Yoga, kayaking, hiking, urban bike ride, beach party, fine dining, dancing, sunrise bonfire and giving back by way of making a kiva micro loan and changing a life.
How much does it cost
For only $50, most of the day's activities are covered. The other activities are covered by you if you decide to go the distance to become a true All In A Day'r. We are not making any profit from our friends.
How do you make a profit
Our intention is to throw an epic party with our friends. If we do make a profit it will be from sponsorships or your donations.
What time does it start
We meet at 6am and get people and gear organized and loaded into vehicles. Yoga starts promptly at 7am in Crab Park.

All in a Day began 8 years ago over a poker game one night in April. Long time friends, Kevin Royes and Dino Bassanese just threw it out there... "how many things can we do in a day"
From the top of Mount Seymour to the bottom, the first year was snowboarding, mountain biking and 9 holes of golf at the picture perfect Northlands golf course.
As the years progressed, they added more activities and good friends until they found themselves at a full 24 hours.
As Dino says, "Our purpose is simple. We live a diverse, active lifestyle in the best city on earth. What better way to celebrate it than to jam it all into one epic day".
"There are triathlons, then there is the Ironman triathlon. This is the Ironman of active days", says Kevin.
Eight years later, and with nine activities, including "changing a life", All in a Day 2015 is definitely going to be the most epic year yet!
