Giving Back
As the event has grown...

... so too has our contribution to the community. From our early years with a few hundred runners, to our current event with thousands, we have raised over $500,000 for local literacy initiatives. Click here to see a yearly breakdown of who has benefited from our event.

happy finishers

In 2008 we undertook a review of our charitable activities and purpose, and among our guiding principles are the following important elements

  • Our giving approach will emphasize an equal emphasis on literacy programs in French and English
  • Our primary focus on literacy and youth will remain through a continuing commitment to the school boards of Districts 1 and 2, however we will also begin to expand our charitable donations to include adult literacy programs through the Moncton Literacy Coalition, or other initiatives.
