Canada Day Fun Run raises spirits, funds

The fifth annual Canada Day Fun Run was a success with roughly 150 people running for the fun of fitness and to raise money for the Stettler Food Bank.

The run featured four routes, two for children and two for adults. Kids had the option of running a 1k or 2.5k run, and adults had the choice of a 5k or 10k run.

All races started just outside William E. Hay Composite High School and finished at the same line from which runners departed. Participants came in all ages and sizes, some walking more than running, all dedicated to having fun and showing a dedication to fitness.

Rebecca Clarke, who works with Performance Physiotherapy, Acupuncture and Massage, the company who organizes the fun run yearly since its inception, also took part for the second time by running the 5k course.

“It was really good, and a lot of fun,” she said. “Most people seemed to be really happy with it.”

She said the bright, sunny day was perfectly suited for the run by being warm but not too hot.

Three dollars from everyone’s entry fee was donated to the Stettler Food Bank, bringing in $450 for the organization.

The event will be returning next year and will hopefully continue to grow.
