Thanks so much for your participation and support for our 10th Anniversary Running for Rachael 5k run/walk event at CF Lime Ridge, on Sunday, Sept 25th.  Although the weather was a bit rainy, we had an excellent day with 200 participants and volunteers enjoying the closed Mall road loop, Messages of Hope, entertainment by The Country Dawgs, food sponsored by Fortinos Waterdown and of course, Bruiser sporting his moves!   

Thanks again to all of our sponsors who contributed significantly to the success of this event.  A special thank you to our sponsors – CF Lime Ridge, RBC Foundation, Runner’s Den, Fiix by Rockwell Automation, MacKenize Financial, Marchese, Mercanti Management Inc., T. Lloyd Electric and The Printing House.

Special thanks to our 40 volunteers whose contribution ensured a great experience for everyone!

It was an uplifting community event that generated considerable mental health awareness and a better understanding of suicide prevention in our community. 

I am very pleased to report that together we raised $35,173.98 so far (donation link is open until October 31st).  The funds will be used finance, city-wide suicide prevention training, Roots of Hope suicide prevention and life promotion initiatives, education and support programs for those who have experienced loss by suicide.

Thank you for being part of our Community of Support.  Together, we can work to reduce suicide and generate hope in our community
