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.

    Good job ladies, was a great event!

    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.

    We had such a wonderful time at this run today. It was so great to include the kids in the event and they had a blast. All of your volunteers were kind and patient thank you for organizing this and we will be back again next year!!!

    Facebook says the race is chip timed. Last year there were no results posted. Makes no sense.

    • Jenny says:

      Hey Ben!
      Our race has never been time chipped, we just wrote the results manually the last 2 years. I did send out a link with the results, but I know there was lots of discrepancies due to the amount of people who ran and the manual timing.
      Here is the link to the 2014 results:
      We are looking into time chipping this year, however because we are a small race and our priority is donations the cost of time chipping is very expensive for us. I do not have an answer just yet if we will be able to actually time chip this year unfortunately.

    Hi! I am signed up to run the 10km on May 24th. My 18 year old son was a patient a few times at the Stollery and is looking for a charity to volunteer for so this one really perked his interest. Are you in need of any additional volunteers? He has experience volunteering for road races. He did so with a race I participated in last year at the Edmonton Garrison (Iron Will). Please contact me by responding to this email or on my cell at 780-934-8140 if you would like his assistance and I will bring him along on Sunday :)
