Halloween Fun Run Wrap-up

Many Thanks to Awesome Volunteers for Halloween Fun Run 2018

Thank you to all of the parents, volunteers, and runners of the Champlain Park Community who came out to run and raise over $900 for Ausome Ottawa on Saturday morning, Oct. 27, 2018. A local charity, Ausome Ottawa provides sports programs for autistic children. Special thanks to Pete Laughton who has organized this event for seven years. Thank you to Adrian Bradley and helpers for hard work clearing the NCC path through the woods, used in winter for SJAM ski trail. Champlain Park Community Association funded treats and prizes so all proceeds from registration would go to charity. Our Councillor, Jeff Leiper, was there and spent most of his time as Marshal on the course, standing and cheering beside the path in the woods as runners went by. What a good sport! An estimated 100 parents and kids showed up in Halloween costumes again this year. First and foremost, they had a lot of fun dressing up, attempting to run in costumes, and eating a little pre-Halloween candy!


We forgot to take photos this year, but this is what it looked like last year:

A message from Peter Laughton (with minor edits for readability):

Thank-you to all the parents, volunteers, and runners who came out to run and raise money for the Hera Mission this morning. Parents donated their time acting as marshalls on the course, distributed candy medals, and gave out snacks to the runners aged 2-12 years. Through their efforts we raised $950 for important projects in Asembo Bay Kenya. Thanks as well to Carol Arnason and the Champlain Park Community Association for sponsorship and opening up the field house. Thanks to Bushtukah for the tent and prizes and thanks to Jordan from Shopper’s Drug Mart for juice and snacks. Lastly, thanks to the teachers and students of Elmdale school who helped promote the event and came out in record numbers.

Thanks!
Pete
