Ringette Canada’s Senior and Junior National Teams will be on the ice for the World Ringette Championships in Mississauga, Ontario from November 27 to December 3, 2017. It is an honour and a privilege for our athletes to represent Canada at this premier event. However, all of the athletes must bear most of the costs to attend this event, as funding is limited.
As a way to raise funds for our athletes a group has organized a 5K Run/Walk to be held in the fall at a number of locations across Canada. Currently runs are scheduled to be held on October 7, 2017 in Calgary, Edmonton, Lacombe, Ottawa and Winnipeg, and on October 21, 2017 in Halifax. A run is also soon to be organized for London Ontario. The organizers are working with the Running Room to help facilitate the success of their event. All funds raised will go to the National Team athletes competing at the 2017 World Ringette Championships.
Details and registration is available here for the Alberta events:
Not only will the event be a great fundraiser, but, it is also an opportunity to come together to celebrate being part of the awesome sport we all love. The hope is that players, their parents, siblings and friends will attend. Coaches can use it as a team building event! If you are in a location where you can get out to participate in the event, we encourage you to register and to tell your friends and teammates to join you. Please note that the Edmonton and Lacombe events will also be offering a 2k option, and the Calgary event will be offering a 1k option along with their 5k routes.
