If you have participated in the first two Strachan Hartley Legacy Runs, you already know the passion that is behind all of our events and have witnessed the positive change that is possible when a community pulls together. The third year was no different. Over 400 runners and walkers came out to support the Foundation, and we were thrilled by the number of youth and families that participated in this year's run.
This year we added a tough 10K course that included a long hill climb up Mosquito Creek, gaining 1275 feet in elevation - we were inspired by the number of runners who challenged themselves and took on the 10K course in its first year!
Together we raised nearly $10,000 - these are numbers that we are extremely proud of and are so excited because we will only keep growing from here! Thank you all for making a difference!

Be sure to take a look through the fantastic 2009 Strachan Hartley Photo Gallery by Mark Bates at 321photos.ca
With over 450 photos from the event, you are sure to find a great one of yourself, your friends, your kids and maybe even your dog! High resolution images are available for purchase on the site, and Mark has once again generously offered to donate the proceeds from these photos to the Strachan Hartley Legacy Foundation. Thanks Mark! Be sure to check out Mark's other galleries while you are there.
A huge thank you to all of our 2009 sponsors and volunteers! Their contribution to making the run an enormous success is beyond measure.
Next year's run will be on the third weekend of October - Sunday, October 17th (a week after Thanksgiving so you can work off that bird). Just letting you know now so you can start training for the Mosquito Creek climb sooner than later! If you have any questions or want to get involved with next year's run please contact Shannon Sullivan or Todd Chapman. We look forward to seeing you next year and thank you for helping us Make a Difference!
