Counting down to 21st Annual Run/Walk for KidsInclusive
Register by Friday, March 10 to score a technical t-shirt
Known equally for its incredible spirit and for the number of kids and families who hit the streets to raise funds for children with special needs, the Annual Run/Walk for KidsInclusive is gearing up another amazing event Sunday, April 2.
Registration is now open for the 21st annual event, which raised $28,000 last year to purchase equipment, support specialized education and training, initiate new programs, and assist families with the exceptional costs associated with raising a child with special needs.
“We’ve got a great T-shirt celebrating the Run/Walk this year,” says organizer Marianne McLure. “You just have to get your registration in by Friday, March 10. It’s a visible way of giving a shout-out to KidsInclusive as you travel along the Run/Walk course.”
Along with a 10km run and 5km run/walk, the event features a fun, kid-sized 1 km run/walk. The hub of the action will be at the Queen’s University Athletics & Recreation Centre (284 Earl Street), with the kids’ race starting at 10:00 am and the adult race at 10:30 am.

“We’ve heard from families that KidsInclusive can make a world of difference in their lives,” says KidsInclusive Manager Christine Kasserra. “Everyone who supports this event can help to make that happen.”
