Run4Kids 2017: 5 km Run/Walk
Presented by Virtual High School and the Optimist Club of Bayfield
Plans are underway for the 5th Annual Run4Kids Run/Walk!
Please join us on September 3, 2017 for a morning of family fun, sport, entertainment, and fundraising — all for a good cause. This year’s event is sponsored by Virtual High School with support from the Optimist Club of Bayfield. All proceeds will be donated to Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario (SWO) to grant the wish of a Huron County child with a life-threatening medical condition.
The Run4Kids 5 km Run/Walk was started in 2012 to raise funds in support of children undergoing treatment for cancer. We were inspired by the story of Will Frassinelli — who has been battling brain cancer for over ten years. Encouraged by the generosity of participants in the past Run4Kids events, we have sought out other children’s charities in the Huron County region. For the third year in a row, we are supporting Make-A-Wish SWO. Last year, we supported Memphis, a nine-year-old boy with Cystic Fibrosis. Memphis' Wish Trip is still in the works, but he will be going on a Caribbean Cruise! Read about Run4Kids 2016 here. In 2015, Run4Kids helped grant Reiko's wish: Helping Reiko's Wish Come True.
Virtual High School will cover all costs associated with organizing the event and will donate all funds raised. The success of the Run4Kids 5 km Run/Walk charity event is dependent on your support and generosity.
We are excited to work with the Optimist Club of Bayfield to raise funds in support of Make-A-Wish SWO. Make-A-Wish SWO grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy! They serve 16 Counties across Southwestern Ontario, including Huron County. To learn more, please visit www.makeawishswo.ca.
