A special thank you to our Volunteers for spending two plus hours outside to make the Race happen on a very cold day! As usual, our volunteers go above and beyond to make our community GREAT! We had a number of kids volunteer with their parent for the event – mom/daughter, father/son. It was great to see the kids step up for the event with their parents. We had a total of 7 kids volunteer for over 2.5 hours – great community spirit!!
A special recognition also to the following businesses that helped with their time and/or door prizes:
Crystal Creek Homes – for the Lemonade station and the Race Passports. Note they currently have a $10,000 referral program for residents of Discovery Ridge only.
Javino – for the race station, door prizes and discount on food.
Heart & Mind Yoga – for hosting the Yogi station and door prizes.
Griffith Store – for hosting the Slush station and discount on slushes.
Healing Matters Psychological Services – for the Brain Teaser station and for taking pictures.
We hope everyone enjoyed being active and had fun engaging with your neighbours and local businesses.
See you next year!
