Our Goal:
To promote fitness, health, and participation as part of a healthy and active lifestyle in our community. We're excited to work with local sponsors to help make the event unique, and to support local businesses right in our community.

We’re excited to announce our partnership with the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. To us, this means a way to spread more mental health awareness, to get more people talking about mental health on a daily basis, and to make a bigger difference in our community. Thank you to Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia for giving us this opportunity, and to all the runners that support us and enable us to make a difference!
