Get ready to lace up your sneakers and experience the transformative power of Fit for Care!
This extraordinary event is more than just a day of fitness and fun—it's an opportunity to make a lasting impact in the lives of seniors in our community.
In its inaugural year, this run pays tribute to Maggie Hanham, a compassionate caregiver, perinatal nurse, and long-time resident of McCormick Home.
Participants can form a team or join as an individual for either a 5K or 2.5K Run/Walk through the picturesque Riverbend neighbourhood.
Following the races, everyone is invited to attend the Community Celebration filled with DJ entertainment, a BBQ, and a Wellness Fair. The fair will feature food samples from local restaurateurs, insights from healthcare professionals, and expertise from mobility experts.
Step into the scenic beauty of the Riverbend neighbourhood and join us for Maggie's Run, a 5K run that pays tribute to an extraordinary individual — Maggie Hanham.
This run holds a special place in our hearts as we honour Maggie, an exceptional perinatal nurse known for her unwavering dedication to her patients. Maggie's selflessness extended beyond her professional life, as she became a devoted caregiver to her husband following his Alzheimer's diagnosis. Later, when Maggie herself received an Alzheimer's diagnosis, she became a cherished resident of McCormick Home.
Maggie's Run is a testament to her resilience, the impact she has had on countless lives, and the compassionate care she received at McCormick Home.
As you navigate the 5K or 2.5K course, you'll be surrounded by picturesque landscapes symbolizing the strength and beauty she embodied. Whether you're an avid runner or simply enjoy a leisurely jog, this event invites participants of all abilities to come together and celebrate the spirit of community.
By participating in Maggie's Run, you'll not only honour Maggie's legacy but also contribute to the well-being of residents at McCormick Home.
Lace-up your running shoes, join us in celebrating Maggie's remarkable journey, and make a lasting impact in the lives of others.
