Five km run and walk raises funds for Stettler Hospice Society

Stettler District Ambulance Association encourages community to be active

The Stettler District Ambulance Employees Association is calling on the community to gather their walking and running shoes and join them in a fun, five km run and walk on Sept. 7th at West Stettler Park.

All funds raised from the Stettler EMS Run for Life, which Caleb Ould, advanced care paramedic, is hoping will be an annual event, will go to the Stettler Hospice Society.

“This is an important organization in our community and a hospice is something that we are lacking,” Ould said.

“In our line of work we do see people in the palliative system and it is important to have that care to help them through end of life,” he added.

Ould is hoping that they get at least 50 registrants, in order to provide the Stettler Hospice Society with a $1,500 donation. People can register for $30 on Eventbrite or on the day of the run and walk at West Stettler Park.

He says registrations are slowly trickling in.

“The more the merrier,” Ould said. “We hope we have a decent turnout.”

The Stettler EMS Run for Life is for all athletic abilities and starts at 10 a.m.

The route starts in West Stettler Park and follows around the lake and baseball diamonds and then heads back to the park. The run and walk is rain or shine and Ould hopes everyone has a good time.

The Stettler EMS Run for Life will have volunteers both from the Stettler District Ambulance Employees Association and the Stettler Hospice Society.

“Come run and have some fun,” Ould said.

More information can be found by searching ‘Stettler District Ambulance Run for Life’ on Facebook or by contacting Caleb Ould at 403-412-4282 or Carrie Jordan at 403-819-2834.
