Avella Injury and Pain Management Centre
This is for YOU Race
Presented by Clear Point Pharmacy & Compounding Centre
June 1st - September 30th, 2021
This race is for YOU!
We are launching the first annual Chronic Pain Awareness Walk/Run in partnership with Avella Injury and Pain Management Centre. This event will create awareness of chronic pain and the impact it can have on individuals, families and communities. This event encourages runners, walkers and individuals of all abilities to get active and benefit from the positive effects of physical activity. Some of the improvements exercise can make are reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and overall well being. There are four distances options - 1K, 2K, 5K and 10K. Run or walk your choice of event anytime between June 1st and September 30th, 2021.
This race is priced at only $35 plus $10 for shipping and handling if you need your kit mailed to you. The race kit includes a finisher medal, a technical t-shirt available in both men's and women's styles, and a face mask!
Help us get people recovering from chronic pain active outside!
We will be giving away FREE entries to patients from the Avella Injury and Pain Management Centre to encourage chronic pain patients to join our VR Pro Inc. race community (family). This will allow us to be a part of their journey to meet their functional goals. There will be 1K and 2K distance options for the clinic patients. Help us reach our goal of getting 500 people active by participating in the race, and or donating. Funds raised through this race will directly support race registrations for those recovering from chronic pain.
The top two fundraisers will be awarded with a pair of ASICS shoes of their choice (up to $200 retail value).
In addition to the two pairs of shoes, race participants will receive an ASICS promo code that is good for $25 on the ASICS online store.
Race participants will also receive a 90 day trial for ASICS Runkeeper GO, an app that'll help you track your walk/run and motivate you to keep going!
