The 2017 Run or Walk for Southlake Returns Sunday, April 30: Here’s How You Can Help!

The 2017 Run or Walk for Southlake, Presented by Nature’s Emporium is less than 2 weeks away, and we need your support to help make this year the biggest year yet!

On Sunday, April 30 we’ll lace up in support of Southlake Regional Health Centre – as we have for 5 amazing years now. Together, we’ve helped the event cross incredible milestones – including surpassing $1,000,000 in NET funds raised! 

We’ve accomplished a great deal, but there’s still lots of work to be done.  

Southlake is a vital resource for wellness within our community. It’s always there when you need it most. The run offers a fun-filled way to give back and ensure that great care is always available close to home. 

Want to help make that happen? Here are a couple simple ways you can support!

Sign Up for the Run.

The Run or Walk for Southlake Regional Health Centre, presented by Nature’s Emporium, welcomes runners of all ages and skill levels! You can choose to run or walk as an individual or as a team.
