Jun 10 2009 - Run or walk for the less fortunate on Canada Day.
By Pat O’Brien
Missed the Dieppe Assumption Vie Run for Life last Saturday? Worry not; another great event awaits your energy July 1st at the St. Anselme/ Dieppe Rotary Park. Goguen Assurance with the generous support of its portfolio of national insurance companies, Jean Coutu and others brings you the 5th annual Canada Day Series 1, 5, or 15km Run or Walk.
It is an early start with the walkers, kids getting away between 8 and 8:15 AM, followed shortly thereafter by the 5 and 15KM runners. Register before June 8th and ensure you get a Coolmax shirt and all of this for just $5.00 for the kids and $25.00 for the older folk!
Appreciating the challenges of worthy fundraising, the inspired ownership and agents of Goguen Champlain Insurance turned their back on bowling in lieu of running, something that is dear to so many of its employees. In fact, it was a few short months back when the noontime-running club from Goguen was featured in the T and T.
Upwards of 200 participants, in what is being billed as a family event will traverse the trails of the Rotary Park and the deceptively steep hills of ever-active Dieppe in support of the Association for People with Special Needs. In fact, this great event is but one of many fundraisers throughout the year that have a strong family orientation.
Before participants answer the starters gun they can gain inspiration form the direct benefactors of this popular outing who get to cross the finish line in what is billed as “The Inspiration Run”. The Running Room has coordinated two of its popular clinics to coincide with the event. Great shirts, good treats and a medal for everyone and you will be home before lunch. What a great start to Canada’s birthday!
