5K / 10K Age for Youth - 18 and under.

We are very excited to host the 3rd annual Great Gower Run on September 29th, 2018! Our goal is to bring together the community of North Gower with a fun, family-friendly running event that focuses on health, wellness and inclusiveness. All proceeds from the event will go towards raising funds
for local youth community initiatives in North Gower and youth mental health and wellness initiatives within the larger Ottawa area. Last year we
were able to donate another $1500 to the CHEO foundation - Youth Net. We hosted a youth dance in the spring and we are hosting a "Social Networking Safety" presentation in the fall with guest speaker, Paul Davies, for youth and parents in the community.
