Running (and pedaling) for hope!

Written on June 13th, 2014


Belleville Christian School hosted its 3rd Annual Spirit Run on Saturday, June 7th. Twenty percent of the money raised at the event went towards the Canadian Cancer Society’s Pedal for Hope Campaign, which supports pediatric cancer research.

A 2 km kids run followed the fundraiser on the new school property just south of Quinte Christian High School. Nearby, adults and older children had the option of enjoying a 5 km walk or run on the Quinte Conservation Area trails.

Since 2005, Pedal for Hope has raised more than $2 million for pediatric cancer research awarded through the Canadian Cancer Society, and has named two pediatric cancer research grants in honour of Pedal for Hope in the last 3 years.
