The 'Goode Run is a COMMUNITY EVENT

The 'Goode Run is a FUNDRAISER
The Osgoode Youth Association relies on funds raised at the 'Goode Run to exist. The 2017 'Goode Run raised almost $30,000 for O-YA! The 'Goode Run is volunteer organized and led, which means 100% of the proceeds go right back into O-YA. This is very unique in the 'fundraising run' world. It's a run you can feel EXTRA good about!
