Run4Kids 2017: 5 km Run/Walk

Presented by Virtual High School and the Optimist Club of Bayfield

We are thrilled to share that with the support of all of our sponsors, participants, volunteers, and donors, Run4Kids 2017 raised $9308 for Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario! Thank you to all!

Final cheque presentation on October 25, 201Left to right: Carley Andison (Make-A-Wish SWO), Charlene Marsman (Make-A-Wish SWO), Jackie Loebach (VHS), Laura Mathonia (VHS), Emily Santos (VHS), Darby Sinnett (VHS), and Denis Lalonde (VHS).

All proceeds have been donated to Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario (SWO) to grant the wish of a Aiden, a 14 year old boy with a cardiac condition. Aiden enjoys playing video games and watching TV shows in his spare time. He listens to country music and his favourite food is burgers and steak - he especially loves the Keg! Aiden's favourite memory was when he got his dog, Lulu. Aiden's most cherished wish is to be the Prime Minister of Canada!


About Run4Kids

The Run4Kids 5 km Run/Walk was started in 2012 to raise funds in support of children undergoing treatment for cancer. We were inspired by the story of Will Frassinelli — who has been battling brain cancer for over ten years. Encouraged by the generosity of participants in the past Run4Kids events, we have sought out other children’s charities in the Huron County region. The success of the Run4Kids 5 km Run/Walk charity event is dependent on your support and generosity. Read about our past events at the links below:

We are excited to work with the Optimist Club of Bayfield to raise funds in support of Make-A-Wish SWO. Make-A-Wish SWO grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy! They serve 16 Counties across Southwestern Ontario, including Huron County. To learn more, please visit
