what makes this event different?
The Honda Waterfront Run was created to help support charities by providing a fun event where people come together for a cause. This event is planned with charities as the beneficiaries. All participants are encouraged to fund-raise or donate to local charities. With out the help of the community these charities would not exist. Charities provide the volunteers to help make this event a success. Please help support a local charity by participating in the “challenges”.
Charity Participant Challenge & Fundraising Challenge
When you register, you will be able to choose which charity you are participating for or supporting. You have the option of creating a fundraising page to help charities further. The top three charities with the largest number of supporters will receive additional donations. Participants do not need to fund-raise or donate to help support a charity.
The charities with the largest number of fundraisers will also receive an additional donation. For charities to be eligible a charity must have minimum of five fundraisers with a minimum fundraising amount of $50 each. Donations made directly to an individual can be included in the calculation, but they will need to be verified.
For both challenges prize amounts are: 1st $500, 2nd $300 and 3rd $200.
Show how awesome your Team is by participating together and support a local charity. It's a win/win challenge. Physical activity + cause = a healthy community!! Make this event a community builder and show your spirit by wearing your Team apparel. The Team to have the most participants entered will help a local charity receive an additional donation of $500.00.
Soul4Souls Canada Shoe Drive
Our friends at BioPed have partnered with Soles4Souls Canada to collect and distribute shoes to those in need. When picking up your race kits you will receive your items in a bag which can be used on race day to donate your old shoes in support of this amazing cause. Together with Soles4Souls Canada, BioPed Footcare puts your generously donated shoes towards sustainable solutions, such as a micro-enterprise program that educates people on how to create their own, self-sufficient operation, providing them with dignity and a way out of poverty. Help them reach their goal of collecting 1,000,000 pairs of used shoes to help change people’s lives! If you can’t donate at the event please use the bag to bring in shoes at any time to the BioPed Footcare & Orthotics location at 181 Livingstone St. E, Barrie. Thank you.
