The Neon Night Fun Run Committee has been honoured by the Canadian Cancer Society for their fundraising efforts. On Monday, January 29, the Canadian Cancer Society held their Annual Appreciation Event for Volunteers and Supporters. Members of the Neon Night Fun Run Committee of North Grenville were on site to receive the award celebrating their impact in Community Fundraising.
This community-level award recognizes individuals or groups that initiate or champion a fundraising event that provides a significant financial contribution to the Canadian Cancer Society. The award also recognizes that these groups or individuals can serve as a model for other organizers.
Brenda Burich, Chair of Neon Night, said, “It was an honour for some of our Neon Night Committee members to be able to be in attendance to accept our award. Thanks to the support of our community and surrounding area, we are able to continue to organize this event and raise funds for Childhood Cancer Research.”
The committee is already hard at work organizing the 5th annual Neon Night Fun Run. It’s set for Saturday, September 22, 2018 at Riverside Park in Kemptville. The website for the event launches on March 1 at www.cancer.ca/neonnightkemptville. This will allow people to register teams and raise funds online.
Neon Night is a 2K/5K fun run that takes place at night, with participants wearing their best neon gear and enjoying all of the pre-party fun. This Canadian Cancer Society initiative raises funds for Childhood Cancer Research.
