Join us for a Run4Change on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 10 a.m. in Royal City Park.

The Run4Change is a 5 km fun run to support children in the Guelph Start2Finish Running and Reading Clubs. Over 150 children participate in a weekly after-school program designed to improve the physical, mental, emotional and social health and increase their love of reading.

While children work towards running and reading goals, they acquire the valuable transferable life skills and character qualities of goal setting, discipline, commitment, perseverance, courage, focus, teamwork, initiative and confidence. 

Before the run participants will have the opportunity to hear from schools/volunteers how the Running and Reading Club is impacting the lives of the children who participate and how their change will make a difference.

Distance: 5 km
Fee: $10
