The Edmonton Runathon is an event rooted into the Edmonton community and geared to engage participants in teamwork, inspire creative fundraising and promote health and fitness. The event itself will be entirely non-for-profit, with all money raised going towards the charity Impossible 2 Possible. For a great outlook on what I2P does and how they do it, take a peek at this short clip they put together! https://vimeo.com/90532376
I2P uses a small group of youth ambassadors to create and disperse interactive material and online education to thousands of students across our country and around the world, so we thought let’s get everyone citywide from youth to adults to compete in the run-a-thon. The YEG Run-a-thon will put teams of 6-12 people together who will compete against other teams in a relay style run-a-thon lasting 12 consecutive hours. With the final winner being named based on their donations raised and distance ran, teams can play to their strengths and work their way to the top!
This event will be filled with prize package giveaways, raffles, fun competitions and healthy food to go around!!! With the amount of prizing being donated by all of the run-a-thon’s generous sponsors, it will be hard for participants not to walk away with a prize!
You don’t have to be a great runner or athlete to take part, you just need a team of friends who are all to have fun and willing to reach out into the community for support! Whether its getting in shape for some summer activities, building teamwork, or simply something fun to do on your long weekend, get signed up and we’ll be sure not to disappoint!! 🙂
