CFDR Fun Run/Walk 2018
The 14th Annual Fun Run/Walk will be held during the Dietitians of Canada National Conference, on Friday, June 8 at 5:30 in Vancouver’s beloved Stanley Park. Enjoy this magnificent green oasis with your friends and colleagues in our 5 km run or walk, or a 10 km run.
Last year’s participants in St. John’s raised a record-breaking $18,000 in pledges to support dietetic practice research, and net proceeds were $30,000.
Let’s gather again to have fun and demonstrate what great supporters you are of dietetic research in Canada. Collect a minimum of $40 in pledges to participate and receive a goodie bag and T-shirt.
Proceeds from the Fun Run/Walk support CFDR's mandate to fund research, which will ultimately enhance the health of Canadians. Without CFDR fundraisers, like the Fun Run/Walk, we would not be able to support important research, such as the 2017 Research Grants funded last year.
These are the ways to participate or support this fun event:
