The R.A.C.E. Run - April 22, 2018, 3:30 PM
Venue: Point Pleasant Park
Type: 5 KM
Race for Awareness, Courage and Empowerement was born from the idea of a 13 year old girl, Fleur O'Connor.
In 2016, Fleur sponsored a young girl from Kenya to come experience life in Halifax and take home inspiration and empowerment to her home town of Iten, Kenya.
Through lots of fundraising and a family initiative, this dream became a reality. Dorothy Chepkonga arrived in Halifax in time to particpate in the inaugural R.A.C.E. Run. She experienced life in Canada with the support of the amazing Halifax community.
Over 140 participants came out to run, cheer and volunteer to make the first R.A.C.E. Run a huge success!
