Event:  Annual Run for Pie

Date:   Time line – Last 2 weeks of May

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

Time:  To be determined

Event Description:

Come down and join us for our Annual Run for Pie 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.

There will be a 1 km kids run and each child will receive a cookie medal at the finish line. In addition there will be a bouncy castle at the finish line to help keep them entertained!

This year we are considering adding a 8-10 km trail run in addition to the 5 km run/walk.

This is a family friendly event; the 5 km course is suitable for all abilities and accessible for strollers and wheelchairs.

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.
