Quispamsis PRO Kids Run and Swim

Quispamsis PRO Kids Run and Swim

Quispamsis, New Brunswick
July 20th, 2019

Please join us for the 5th annual Quispamsis Run and Swim in support of the PRO Kids Foundation. Participate in either the Tim Hortons Timbits 500m, the Go Go Gym 1km kids' fun run, the River & Trail 3km trail run for children and youth (7-18 years of age), or the 97.3 The Wave 5km race!

Registration fee includes: the run, free swimming at the QPlex for the first 300 registrants (pool opens at 11:00), two large inflatable playgrounds compliments of Go Go Gymnastics, an activity centre for kids with crafts hosted by KidZone, a live DJ, great food from local merchants such as Vito's, Subway, Tim Hortons, Peddlers Creek and Cochrane's Country Market, and more! All this for only $25 for the 5k, $15 for the 3k, and $5 for the kids' 1k /500 metre run (note these are early bird prices).

All proceeds will go to PRO Kids Saint John, a non-profit organization that provides funding for underprivileged youth to participate in sport and recreation activities. This fundraising event is timely, as a recent study reported that Saint John has the highest child poverty rate in Canada, with a staggering 30% of children in Saint John and surrounding areas now living in poverty.

Book early, as there are limited QPlex pool tickets. All event participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item in support of KV Food Basket. Come out, support a great cause, and make a difference.

See you at the starting line! If you can't make it, please consider making a donation to this great cause!!
