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, a VHS student 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 event is sponsored by Virtual High School (VHS) with support from the Optimist Club of Bayfield. All proceeds will be donated to Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario (SWO) to grant the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition. The success of the Run4Kids 5 km Run/Walk charity event is dependent on your support and generosity.
Make-A-Wish® Southwestern Ontario Canada (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. All proceeds to Run4Kids 2021 will be donated to Make-A-Wish SWO. To learn more, please visit www.makeawishswo.ca
