Run/Walk in support of Carefor Health & Community Services

September 2, 2017

The 5 & 10 km Run/Walk is a fundraiser for Carefor, a charity providing home health care since 1897.

On Saturday, September 2, 2017, Somersault Event Series will host the 5Km and 10Km Fun Runs as part of their "Canadian Weekend" running series. Carefor Health & Community Services is the official Charity of the Event. All donations and sponsorships through this pledge program will support Carefor’s charitable work in Ottawa. Charitable Registration No 11928 4768 RR0001

There is no age restriction. Youth, families, adults, and seniors are all welcome to join the team.

To join Team Carefor we need you to register with Carefor and agree to collect a minimum of $50 in pledges. All pledges of $20 or more are tax deductible.

Carefor hosts a silent auction, giving you one more way to show you care. A full range of interesting items to suit everyone from the outdoorsy type to the social butterfly will be available.

Drop by the Carefor Tent on-site on Friday Sept. 1 and Saturday Sept. 2 to browse and bid. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to support Carefor's dementia care programs and services.
