Kingston’s Run4Change is happening at Runners’ Choice on Wednesday, May 15th at 6pm. We are collecting change to support Start2Finish in their efforts to help Canadian kids.
Run4Change is a national 5K run in support of Start2Finish, a charity focusing on positively impacting the lives of impoverished Canadian kids. Run4Change raises vital funds to support Start2Finish, a national children’s charity whose mission is to break the cycle of child poverty by providing ongoing educational support to Canada’s at risk children throughout their school years, nurturing mind, body and social health so they are empowered to succeed and become role models for change. The Start2Finish Fitness & Literacy Model helps kids with high adverse childhood experiences reach their maximum potential. To learn more about Start2Finish, check out their website at www.start2finishonline.org
Join with Kingston runners and bring your spare change for a fun 5k run (and 2.5k walk) in support of this great cause!
KRRA’s Limestone Race Weekend April 27-28th is fast approaching!
This race is organized and supported by the Kingston Road Runners Association in support of KRRA charitable causes as well as the Kingston General Hospital Trauma Program and Start2Finish (formerly KidsFest Canada) and their excellent Running and Reading clubs for children at two public schools in Kingston.
The weekend starts on Saturday with the Trauma 10k, a one-of-a-kind run along the Kingston waterfront. This race begins and ends in MacDonald Park, near the foot of Emily Street. The KGH Trauma 10k race is aimed at raising awareness and injury prevention of year round causes of trauma. Some examples are snowmobile and boating accidents, and car crashes, all of which are preventable.
Sunday morning the gun goes to start the Limestone 5k and 1/2 Marathon races. Runners in both events race to the finish in front of Kingston’s 170 year-old City Hall. Just one thing, the 1/2 marathoners have another 16.1 kms of running ahead of them, along our beautiful waterfront and back to City Hall for hot chili from the Brew Pub, prizes and music!

This is just a reminder that the Gan to Kingston Run is next Sunday, March 24th. We ask that runners confirm they will be attending and, if so, precisely how long they will be running (providing an exact mileage will help us a great deal with logistics) by Wednesday, March 20th. So far, it looks as though we have 2 cars and a couple of drivers. If anyone is willing to drive or is able to supply a car (preferably 5+ seats), this would help us a great deal. Those who would like to lend a hand can call or e-mail the store.
Runners will be meeting at the store by 8am (try to be there around 7:45 to be safe), with the intention of arriving in Gan at 8:30.
Thanks again everyone!
