This year, since we can’t meet in person, the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure has been transformed into a one-of-a-kind experience with both physical and virtual components.
On Run Day, Varsity View community residents will join the live-streamed online opening ceremonies at 9:30 am CST before heading out to walk or run in the neighbourhood. Several 1 KM and 5 KM routes are set up in the city for people to use on Run Day. The North Route and the Central Route are the routes closest to the Varsity View community but residents are welcome to use any route they would like to take.
Being physically apart won’t stop us from coming together to change the future of breast cancer. Join us and run or walk your way on October 4th. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Saskatoon CIBC Run for the Cure Committee through their facebook group “Saskatoon – Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run For the Cure”. Register today at cibcrunforthecure.com.
9th Annual Fun Run/Walk and Cultural Expo September 21, 2019 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM Victoria Park (near the boathouse)
The Race Against Racism (RAR) got its start in 2011 with one goal; to provide a positive environment for people of all backgrounds to gather and promote an active, healthy lifestyle while encouraging positive police community relations. Runners, walkers and rollers have the choice to participate in the 2.5km, 5km, or 10km.
Members from five settlement agencies (Saskatoon Open Door Society, The Global Gathering Place, International Women of Saskatoon, Newcomer Information Centre and Saskatchewan Intercultural Association), are part of RAR’s planning committee. Those agencies collect and divide the funds raised from the event to help continue local programming. A joint fundraiser called “Cram the Cruiser” is also tied to the Race. All entrants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to help fill a patrol car to donate to the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre.
The City of Saskatoon’s Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Committee have been key partners from the beginning. Our partners at Brainsport will be hosting the race.
The Race includes an expo beyond the finish line called “Around the World – A Cultural Expo.” It showcases ethnic displays from local groups to promote community engagement and to celebrate diversity.
The Annual Race Against Racism brings together individuals from all over Saskatoon from various communities, with unique backgrounds, religions, cultures, sexual orientations, ages and ethnicities. Everyone comes together to achieve a common goal; to provide a positive, safe environment to live in harmony and show that Saskatoon will not accept racism.
Terry Fox Run – Sunday September 16, 2018
Everyone is welcome to participate in a Terry Fox Run, regardless of age, athletic ability or socio-economic standing. While the Run does not have an entry fee or minimum donation we do ask all participants to fundraise or make a donation. You can raise funds online, use a pledge sheet or make a donation at the Run site. Whatever your choice, please know that every dollar counts.
This year’s run will be held at the Bessborough Gardens. Registration begins at 11 a.m. Run start time is 12 p.m.
September 20, 2015 marks the 35th anniversary of Terry’s Marathon of Hope. 35 years ago, Terry achieved his goal to raise $1 for every Canadian. On the 35th Anniversary of The Marathon of Hope, and with 35 million people in Canada, it is possible to raise $35 million for cancer research. Help us raise $1 for every person in your community.
Saskatchewan has tremendous supporters across the province and is expecting to have around 60 communities and 570 schools participating in the Terry Fox run in 2015. Our supporters make us proud in their selfless dedication by sharing the gift of hope year after year.
