Sporting Life 10K Run for Starlight Children’s FoundationSporting Life invites you to be part of raising $50,000 for Starlight Children’s Foundation through its upcoming 10K run on Saturday, June 15, with all funds raised going towards brightening the lives of children and youth with cancer.
The run will take place on a point-to-point net downhill course, with a view of Calgary's city-scape at the start line. Participants will enjoy running through the south-west quadrant of the city with the final kilometers weaving amongst downtown skyscrapers, before finishing in Olympic Plaza. It’s the only race of its kind in Calgary and with its downhill path – you’ll have a chance to hit your personal best 10k time!
There are a variety of ways to support this important cause, including participating in the run itself and fundraising through personal and professional networks, volunteering on run day, or cheering the runners on along the route and at the post-race party. The run will be facilitated by Run Calgary, who will present awards for top athletes and celebrate personal bests for everyone.
When: Saturday, June 15, 8 a.m. start
Where: 17th Avenue SW, at 69th Street, just east of the intersection
