(Brockville) – More than 120 runners made the recent Champions Light the Night charity fun runs a success, including many youth who learned the value of supporting peers in their community.

Registrants attended one of two events on the evening of Friday, June 3, either at Gray’s Creek in Cornwall or Hardy Park in Brockville. Participants walked or ran a one-kilometre or five-kilometre course, raising $2,343 for the Upper Canada District School Board Champions for Kids Foundation (C4K). Each registrant was provided with a fluorescent plastic necklace and wristband to wear, adding a new dimension to the event.

C4K President Carole Dufort was delighted with the results. She said a decision by Co-Chairs Trevor Holme and Christopher Hannah in Brockville, and Ian Callan in Cornwall to hold evening runs made this year’s events special.

“It was a new approach to hold the events at night and adding the glow-stick jewelry made our runs very kid-friendly,” said Dufort. “We had many come out to support our cause. Connecting with children and providing them with an opportunity to be active and have fun is a major part of what C4K’s all about.”

The events also benefitted from the generous support of the Cornwall Multisport Club, which provided an additional donation of $500 on top of the money many club members gave in registration fees. Organizers would also like to thank their many sponsors including: TD Canada Trust, RoadID, Canadian Tire, Tim Hortons, Dairy Queen, Promotional Concepts and Wendy’s.
