Even though The Nov. 28, 2020 Team Unbreakable Bold and Cold 5k was 100% virtual, by all measures, the event was a literal success.
Overall, 224 runners (including 22 coaches) and 11 teams participated, helping us raise $13,272. Based on the photos and comments from social media, enthusiasm was high. Runners participated from Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, The Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Quebec, cities across the GTA, multiple regions in Ontario, and internationally, in China.
Team Unbreakable received many encouraging posts and emails from program participants who wanted to give back.
“Thanks for providing this experience for our youth and to my son. This program was introduced at his school … he was able to discover yet another reason to enjoy running, while nourishing his mental health!” said the mother of a participating student.
Thanks to Adidas Canada, our top three fundraisers received new running shoes.
Team Unbreakable Programs will continue in 2021. If you are interested in signing up, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
