For over a decade, heroes across Calgary have laced up for Race for Pace and embraced their inner hero for children with special needs! This superhero event raises funds and awareness for the children at Pacekids; presenting an opportunity for community members to support a local charity while logging a few kilometers.
This year, we have all been doing our part and staying home, but we know that Race for Pace is a highlight for so many families in our community and an important fundraiser for Pacekids Programs.
This year, we once again look forward to hosting a virtual Race for Pace presented by Grant Thornton and being able to bring the community together once again!
How does a Virtual Race work?
All participants will complete their run or walk at their leisure between June 4 and June 20, 2021 and are encouraged to share videos/photos on social media and tag Pacekids Programs.
