Jump Start Your Healthiest Year Ever
Please join us on Friday, December 31st at 2pm for the Fourth Annual Wolfville Resolution Run/Walk. This event, modeled on Resolution Runs in many communities, started in 2007 when Janet Mooney and Susan Markham-Starr organized a fun way to do two important things: to get people active, and to give support to the local food bank. Attendance and support has grown each year from 33 people contributing $100 and one bag of food in the midst of a blizzard in 2007, to 67 people contributing $50 and 20 bags of food in 2008, to over 80 people donating $287 and many, many bags of food for the Wolfville Area Food Bank on a glorious day in 2009. We hope for good weather and lots of participants this year.
Local sponsors have helped every year. The Town of Wolfville has printed the posters and provided facilities. Stirling Fruit Farms has also been with us providing hot cider since that cold blizzardy day in 2007. This year Abs-O-Lute Health Club and the provincial government’s Health Promotion and Protection Department are providing door prizes.
The route goes from the Wolfville Recreation Centre, on Victoria Avenue, along the south side of Main Street to Landmark East, and back along the north side of Main Street to Victoria Avenue and the Wolfville Recreation Centre. Finishers will be greeted with hot apple cider and draws for door prizes.
So….for a fun outing to help yourself and your community, come to the Wolfville Recreation Centre on New Year’s Eve. Registration begins at 1:30 and we will head out at 2pm.
If you want further information, contact Susan Markham-Starr, Janet Mooney or Shannon Read. You can also download the brochure and registration form from the Town website.
