We popped into town today to volunteer at the Easter Seals Run this morning. The Upper Canada Mall Easter Seals 10k is York Region’s longest running fundraiser for children and youth with physical disabilities. Over the past 40 years this race has raised nearly $3 million to help children and youth with physical disabilities.
Team Running Free Newmarket and the Blister Sisters were course marshals, making sure all the runners and walkers were on the right track. It was great to see such a good turn out on such a hot morning for a great cause!
Kudos for volunteering. I remember doing this event about 15 years ago and it was a huge deal to me at the time as I hadn’t done much in the way of running. A truly great local initiative for Newmarket.
