Of course our first choice would be to have everyone gather again at the Regional High School on an early Sunday morning in August for our annual Charity Road Race and Community Walk, but precaution needs to prevail.
Instead, we will have a virtual road race again, as we did very successfully in 2020.
Register at www.events.runningroom.com and do a half marathon, 10K, 5K, 2K, or Junior run, or our popular Family/Community Walk. You may also register by contacting The Health Foundation at 306-786-0506 or toll-free at 800-636-3243.
When the run (or walk) is done, post your times and pictures of your run on social media.
Registration fee is $20 for adults and $10 for age 17 and under. Tee shirts are available for an additional $15 but must be ordered with registration before July 16.
All proceeds from the event go towards the purchase of medical equipment for the regional hospital.
The Charity Road Race played out in a much different way in 2020; it was conducted as a virtual run, which means that the participants ran on their own the latter half of August, and posted their times and pictures of their run on social media.
“We were not sure what to expect, given the environment we are living in with Covid-19. However, the Charity Road Race was very successful," said Ross Fisher, Executive Director of The Health Foundation.
In large part the Road Race was successful because Geoff Propp, General Manager of Harvest Meats, promoted the run and sponsored Harvest Meats staff to participate.
