The 0.5K Fun Run
The Alzheimer Society of Windsor-Essex (ASWE) is inviting the Windsor and Essex County community to dig out their running shoes and their best German attire for the inaugural
The Fort .5 Fun Run.
The Fort .5K Fun Run (500 meters | ½ kilometer) is a humorous imitation of the competitive races of which our community is so fond of. This fun run is for everyone who opts out of the 5K, 10K, ½ & full marathons but still longs to be part of a run for charity. It’s a fun run geared to the long distance runners hidden inside all of us!
BEST OF ALL – NO TRAINING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS RUN!
This event is part of The Fort Fun Centre’s Octoberfest weekend celebrations. Octoberfest activities and bands are scheduled from Friday, October 4, 2019 through Sunday, October 6, 2019. “The Fort is excited to bring an Octoberfest celebration to our area and be able to help the Alzheimer Society through this run event. Alzheimer’s is a growing cause that needs more and more support and we are happy to help.” says Brad Hearn, Owner of The Fort Fun Centre.
Participants can register individually on-line through RaceRoster or we encourage those interested to gather a group together and register as a team. Set team fundraising goal and challenge other teams to race you to the finish line. Registration is $35 for adults and $10 for kids under 12.
Proceeds from The Fort .5K Fun Run will support local programs and services provided by the Alzheimer Society of Windsor & Essex County.
“This is a run event with a twist from our local long distance events in the area,” says Peggy Winch, Manager of Fund Development and Community Engagement at the Alzheimer Society, “we are only asking participants to run a ½ kilometer for a great cause, and have a ton of fun doing it. We are really hoping for a great turnout.”
Cost: $35.00 in advanced | $40.00 on race day | $10 for children under 12
