On your mark, get set, GO!
On Sunday, May 7th, 2017 local runners gathered for the WNGH Foundation’s 5th annual Run4Health at the starting line located in the Hospital parking lot. Participants could register to run or walk 10KM, 5KM, or a Hospital Mile and were greeted at the finish line with medals, an official race time, water, Powerade, and healthy snacks donated by our outstanding community partners!
Awards were given out curtesy of Wrightway Sportswear, McDonalds, Sturgeon Falls’ Mr. Sub, Sturgeon Falls’ Twiggs Coffee Roasters, and the West Nipissing Community & Recreation Centre.
Runners ranging from four all the way to sixty-one years of age endured the chilly May weather to participate in this community event to promote healthy and active living. All funds raised from this event benefitted the WNGH General Equipment Fund to aid in the purchasing of a new defibrillator and a portable ventilator.
Thank you to everyone who participated, each step you took brought us one step closer to reaching our goal! A special thank you to our many community partners, sponsors, and dedicated volunteers for their generous donations and involvement, the success of fundraising events such as the Run4Health truly depends on you!
