Be Apart of History in the making.... 

The 9th Annual Colleen Lantz Memorial Run 4 Youth!  In 2014 the torch was passed onto WES For Youth Online to carry out the legacy of this important event. The 8th Anuual Colleen Lantz Memorial Run 4 Youth was a success thanks to all of our sponsors, volunteers and participants. $7,000 was donated directly to WES For Youth Online (to support its ongoing online counselling program for youth) and $2,445 was directed to the Colleen Lantz Memorial Bursary (to help assist local students in their pursuit of post-secondary education in Health/Wellness and or Physical education). 

As our team of hardworking Run 4 Youth volunteers prepare for this years race we are honored, humbled and very excited. It is our goal to make this years event even better, still continuing on with many of the traditions the attendees and community members have come to love and enjoy.  

Our Team is dedicated to making this an event you will NOT want to miss....

About Colleen Irene Lantz

Colleen Irene Lantz was a vibrant young woman originally from Neustadt, ON with a passion for fitness, which was only surpassed by her love for her family and for children.  She had been planning to organize a local run in October 2007 with Alecia Lantz, Run 4 Youth Former Race Director.  Their goal was to increase the health and fitness of the local communities while raising money for local organizations geared toward assisting children.  On August 11, 2007 Colleen lost her life in a tragic automobile accident.  Her six week old son and husband survived the accident.
