The Ft. Garry Rotary Club needs our help. Sign -ups for their upcoming , Race For Youth , Half Marathon, are WAY Down! For those who don’t know, the Rotarians do great work. Every year they look after The Teddy Bears’ Picnic Pancake tent, but committed in other ways to making Winnipeg and our world a better place to live. These are unselfish people coming together to make lasting changes, hence their motto: Service Above Self.
SUNDAY, September, 17th , is a BIG Day and they NEED YOU! The third annual Race for Youth , Half Marathon, will take place in the lovely St. Vital Park. You’ll be helping raise funds in support of additional vocational programming through the Knowles Centre, helping youth to find their path. Your signing up helps provide graduating students at Knowles, to continue training and even find employment.
Since sign-up numbers are down and the Rotarians are appealing to all runners to sign up. This is a 5k fun run on an out and back certified course. The route is one of the most scenic in Winnipeg too, beginning at the Duck Pond Shelter in St. Vital Park. Log on at www.rotarymarathon.ca .
