On Saturday November 10, 2018, the kick-off to our first annual “Dinner Dash” Fun Run will take place within the beautiful winter surroundings of William Hawrelak Park.  The Dinner Dash is a festive 5 km and 2.5 km Fun Run and is a new fundraising event to help us launch our 78th Annual Christmas Fundraising Campaign.  

We are inviting people of all ages and abilities to put a team together, collect pledges and brave a few hours outside in the winter air.  Participants can walk, jog, skip or run to shake off the winter chill and help us raise funds to help make the holiday happen for deserving Edmonton families, seniors and children in need this holiday season.
