Event:  Second Annual Run/Walk for Pie 5k

Date:   Saturday, May 31, 2014

Location: Kinsmen Park, 9100 Walterdale Hill NW, Edmonton Alberta

Time:  10:00 AM 

Event Description:

Come down and join us for our Second Annual Run for Pie on May 31st benefiting the Stollery Children’s Hospital Music Therapy Program. 

Every walker and runner will be rewarded with a slice of pie, complete with your choice of whip cream and/or vanilla ice cream. Water and coffee will also be served at the finish line.

This year we also are hosting a 1km kids run, for those kids who do not like pie we will have delicious cupcakes and a topping bar for the ice cream.  Tina will be chaperoning the kids on their run and taking pictures, however parents are welcome and encouraged to run with their child at no extra cost.  The entire 1km course is also visible to the finish line.

To keep things interesting, there will be a bouncy castle/slide combo for kids at the finish line, admission is free with the purchase of a race entry for children, but only $1.00 for unlimited bounces without a race entry.

This is a family friendly event; the course is suitable for all abilities and accessible for strollers and wheelchairs.

We have adjusted the times for the run and walk to accommodate the kids run.

Kids run: 10:00am

Walk: Will commence immediately after the kids run.

Run: 10 minutes after the walk starts.

Stick around after the race for your chance to win some amazing prizes from our 2014 sponsors!


Fee: $30

About the Charity:

Music Therapy is a program that touches the lives of many children and promotes healthy coping strategies in the midst of hospital treatment. Music therapy sessions can be done individually at the child’s bedside or in small groups in children’s rooms or in a common area in the unit. There is also a weekly group session on The Beach, the largest playroom at the Stollery. The Music Therapy Program at the Stollery Children’s Hospital began in November of 2011 and is operated solely on donations.

    Can small children accompany mum instead of doing the childrens run. My daughter and I are interested in taking part but would probably prefer to bring her little ones along with us because they are four and two. Thanks.
