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.
Every year, we look forward to connecting with our community and working together to raise funds in support of children with life threatening medical conditions through Make-A-Wish® Southwestern Ontario Canada. Out of concern for the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, and everyone else involved in our annual event, we have decided to go virtual for the 2020 race. Despite the changing circumstances, we hope to still host a successful run. Stay tuned for more information. We know COVID-19 has been hard on everyone. This year, you can choose what you donate to participate. As always, you can also have friends and family donate towards your run as well!
Since we can't have a photobooth this year, we thought it would be fun for people to submit pictures to us. You can submit them through our Facebook page or email them directly to our contact below.
