Calling on friends and families – come run and play with us!
We’ve started warming up for the 8th Annual Primary Care Network (PCN) Women’s Fun Run and are just about ready to walk, run, and stroll around the beautiful MacKenzie Trail System and Lindsay Thurber High School track in Red Deer. All of the money raised at this event will go towards The Mustard Seed School Lunch Program (SLP) to feed between 350 – 400 children every lunch hour, in over 30 schools.
The day includes a 1, 3, 5, or 10km marathon, but also a Family 3km, a Little Ladies 500m, a 100m dash, and a Young Men’s 100m.
“We are excited to celebrate health and wellness,” says Val Jensen, Race Director/Event Coordinator, “while helping our local kids take a step on their journey to a healthier life.”
Last year we successfully raised $35,000 for our school program, which helped us serve 56,000 lunches to the children in our community. We’re hoping for an even bigger turn-out this year as we’ve added some new events and prizes.
We’re challenging individuals to raise $1,000 for the SLP, which in turn will award an individual the opportunity to sport a diaper for a 100m dash (Note: the diaper may be worn anywhere; we have a 91-year-old woman participating who will be carrying it in her purse!).
If you win, not only will you have bragging rights and the title of “Red Deer’s Fastest 100m Diaper Dash-er,” but the top fundraiser will win a StayCation Package for two.
The individual with the highest fundraising total will receive a StayCation Package for two! This includes:
- A luxury package from Totally Refreshed Spa
- Gift certificates from State & Main
- Massage for two from Milestones Massage Co.
- Gift certificate from Meeting Waters
- Gift certificate from Trailhead Climbing & Fitness
- Two-month gym memberships from Orange Theory Fitness
The three teams that raise the most money will choose from the following amazing packages:
- Banff Rafting Adventure
- Limo & Dinner (8 people)
- Luxury Suite at the Races
Come play with us!
