Sign in will begin at 9am at Zwicks Centennial Park - Hill Picnic Site #4 in Belleville, with the walk/run starting at the Zwicks trail by the James Moore Dog Park. You then continue onto the Parrot Riverfront Trail which will take you behind the stores of our beautiful downtown Belleville and up to the Grace Inn Homeless shelter on 315 Church Street. There, you will find a refreshment/rest stop and you may check out the future site of the shelter. This is the 2.5km walk. If you choose, you can end there, or continue back the same way to Zwicks for the 5km run/walk.
80% of the profits raised will go to Grace Inn Homeless Shelter and 20% will go to the Ontario Association for Suicide Prevention.
Sign up as an individual or as a team (more fun!). Our goal is to raise $20,000, so if 100 participants raise $200 each, we can achieve this! We raised $18,500 last year!! There will be a celebration BBQ (at Zwicks Centennial Park - Hill Picnic Site #4) free of charge for all participants, as draws for amazing prizes (including a gift basket for the participant who raises the most funds!).
Registration fee for all participants is $20 which includes t-shirt, BBQ lunch and chance to win prizes!
Sign in begins at 9am and actual run/walk is at 10am. Post run Celebration BBQ is at 11:30am.
Tax receipts will be issued for all donations of $20 or more. You must provide mailing address as well as email address in order to receive a receipt.
