7th Annual Spring Into Action Diabetes Fundraiser Sat. April 21April 17th, 2012
2k, 5k or 10k
Walk, Run or Cycle through Sunnybrook Park
Start/Finish @ Northlea United Church, 125 Brentcliffe
This Walk, Run or Cycle for the Canadian Diabetes Association is a fun, family event based on exercise and awareness. Diabetes is a global pandemic and the fastest growing chronic disease in North America. Diabetes is a very serious illness which affects 1 in every 5 Canadians.
Our community has raised over $15,000 for the Canadian Diabetes Association and 10 pounds of food for the Flemingdon Food Bank, with the support of local businesses and friendly neighbours. In addition to the main event, We were also able to provide an afternoon of education, awareness and fun for the community on prevention and coping with diabetes.
This year’s event looks to be even better. We’ll start the day with breakfast and registration at 9:00 am followed by a morning Yoga warm up at 9:25 am, the main event at 9:50 am, and then a post event BBQ celebration starting at 11:00am. This year’s event promises to be full of great community, good food, and amazing music from local jazz artists Son Roberts Blues Band.
You can choose to register for the walk/run/cycle and that includes your breakfast and BBQ, or you can join us just for Yoga and Breakfast and cheer on the participants at the start of their run. You can also just come to the post event BBQ to celebrate everyone’s participation.
Don’t forget to also bring a donation to the Flemington Food Bank when you come out on April 21, 2012!
