Recap of the 12th Annual Fun Run/Walk

Dietetic research received a boost on June 9th as 100 participants donned their pink event shirts and joined the Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research (CFDR) for the Fun Run/Walk fundraiser!

As part of the Dietitians of Canada national conference, the Fun Run/Walk invites attendees to take a break from educational and networking sessions to walk, jog or run in support of our research programs. Our 12th annual event was held along the scenic Riel Esplanade and the banks of the Red River in Winnipeg, Manitoba. 

Through registrations, donations and sponsorship, the event raised $22,900 net to support CFDR’s research grant program. 

Congratulations to Brittany Thomas and Marilyne Petitclerc, our first place 10K and 5K runners—no small feat on an unseasonably hot and sunny evening! 

CFDR thanks all our participants and donors for their generous support of the event.
