Photo Recap: The 2018 Run or Walk for Southlake, Presented by Nature’s Emporium!
*Updated May 1* We’re proud to announce that this year’s in-store Southlake Support Sale has generated $2450, including the proceeds from our in-store silent auction for the beautiful painting, created and donated by Nature’s team member Scott Daly! These funds will be donated directly to the 2018 Run for Southlake, which currently sits at over $173,000 in total funds raised. Thank you to all of our amazing customers for once again sharing your generosity and support through this initiative!
On Sunday, April 29, over 1,500 participants and supporters gathered together to celebrate the hospital that has given us all so much – Southlake!
The Run or Walk for Southlake, presented by Nature’s Emporium is a major community event that takes place every spring right here in Newmarket, generating vital funds for Southlake Regional Health Centre.
The funds raised during the event – over $1,000,000 NET to date – ensure that our community’s hospital has the right equipment, technology and services to be there for us when we need it most.
We’ve been the proud title sponsor of this event since 2013, but this year just may have been the best yet (thanks to the glorious sunshine!).
It was a sold out event, and the staging area was packed with excited participants. To add to the excitement, as of yesterday, we’d already hit the $170,000 mark in funds raised by all participants, reaching this year’s goal. What an amazing show of support!
We’d like to sincerely thank all of the participants and community-focused businesses who help make this amazing event possible, year after year. We’d also like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our team and our Run for Southlake product partners, including:
- Genuine Health
- Amazing Grass
- Made Good Bars
- Kind Bars
- Kewaza Energy Bites
- Goddess Garden
- Bob’s Red Mill
- Flow Water
We couldn’t do it without you!
See you next year!
