The PEF Family Fun Run on Sunday, May 1st was a resounding success. Even the rain held off until the race ended.
With revenues over $4000, Fun Run has become an important fundraiser for the foundation. Directors, administrators, teachers and support staff, and parents, dedicated runners and tyros, all enjoyed a healthy fun-filled activity with their children.
Two-year-olds proudly walked the 2km and teenagers ran the 5km with speed and ease. There were more families than ever before! We are very grateful for your support for PEF.
The Fun Run could not have happened without the hard work of the Fun Run Committee: Maria De Wolfe, Rachel Wilson, Nancy Battet, Liliana Sacco, Joanne Malowany, Christopher Fuzessy, Olga Killingbeck, Nan Beaton, Della Graham; and the backing of the LBPSB, the city of Dollard-des-Ormeaux, the 690 Lakeshore Squadron Royal Canadian Air Cadets, Kelly Dashney, paramedic from Lakeshore Volunteer Rescue Squad, members from the Pointe Claire YMCA, someone to warm up the runners from Sports Specialist, and Matt Canavan, Principal of St. Charles Elementary School, who did a wonderful job as MC for the morning. We thank all the sponsors of drinks and refreshments, and did you see those cool water bottles from Fuller Landau? Please see below for a list of all our generous sponsors.
Always there for us for the heavy lifting were Harold Ross of Continuing Education and Don Purcell from Equipment Services.
