Run 4 kids, run for a cause

24 Nov

While running a marathon in Fort Worth, Texas last winter, Power of Choice founder Scott Gallagher decided to invent a winter running event in Toronto. That idea was too big to execute on his own so Scott enlisted the help of the Leave Your Mark and Up2BIGstuff organizations to participate. All three organizations deliver empowerment programs for youth and have teamed up to create Toronto’s first indoor ultra marathon.

This important Run4RKids event will take place
January 8th, 2011 at York University in Toronto


This is the first-ever Run4RKids fun run! Join us to support three inspiring organizations that support kids:

  • Leave Your Mark empowers children and youth to take on leadership roles and participate in community development.
  • Up2BIGstuff brings stories about youth who have demonstrated talent, leadership, creativity, and compassion.
  • Power of Choice delivers programs that support youth, educators and parents in preventing and breaking free from drugs, alcohol, tobacco, bullying, abuse, lying and self-harm and other habits.

WHEN:     Saturday, January 8, 2011
WHERE:   York University, Keele Campus, 4700 Keele St, Toronto
Toronto Track & Field Centre, 231 Ian McDonald Blvd. 416.392.2522
