On June 5, Quebec City’s Plains of Abraham were alive with the sounds of dietitians and their supporters braving the rain in support of the Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research.
Scores of runners and walkers took on the 10K and 5K courses at the 11th annual event, which was held in conjunction with the 2015 Dietitians of Canada conference. Through the support of our sponsors, our 150 registered participants and their donors, we raised over $20,000 net proceeds for dietetic research—no small accomplishment given the weather!
CFDR would like to thank and recognize the generous contributions of our Gold Sponsor, the Dairy Farmers of Canada, as well as our Silver Sponsors the Egg Farmers of Canada and PepsiCo. We would also like to thank our Bronze Sponsors, Hydralite, Kellogg Canada and Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. Finally, we would like to recognize Lolé and David’s Tea for the prizing support and Lululemon for the warm-up at the event.
Events such as these are impossible to execute without the tireless efforts of our volunteers. CFDR would like to recognize the 2015 Fun Run Committee: Shannon Crocker, Georgette Harris, Annie Motard-Bélanger and Vicky Drapeau.
See you all at the next Fun Run/Walk at the DC Conference in Winnipeg next June!
