Lace up your runners and help Hospice this summer. In the much-loved Road Runner cartoons, it seemed as though anything was possible. If the Road Runner wasn’t afraid of Wile E. Coyote, what’s stopping you from lacing up your shoes and hitting the pavement this June at the 19th annual Run the Great Lakes? Running has been proven to improve mood, boost the immune system and build camaraderie.
If you’re new to the running scene, are an elite runner, or simply want to see what running is all about, Run the Great Lakes is the event for you this summer. You don’t have to be fast – you can jog or even walk your way to fitness while supporting local charities.
Along with the 5K and 10K loops, this year, the run committee is excited to announce the addition of the “Kids Love to Run” 1 and 2K fun run sponsored by Canadian Tire starting at 9 am. The Jumpstart program at Canadian Tire, along with the YMCA, are thrilled to present this event. Kids of all ages are invited to participate, regardless of skill level. All proceeds from the kids run will be donated to facilitate a run camp which will help educate children on the health benefits of running and get them excited to lace up their running shoes. If you are interested in signing up your child for the run, click here.
