The inaugural Run for Life fundraiser proved to be a success.
Eighty-two participants registered for the event, which was organized by the Team Enbridge Relay for Life entry, and held on June 1 at the Woodlawn Regional Park. The event grossed about $2,160.
Thirty-six competitors were in the five-kilometre run, and another 36 people were part of the three-kilometre walk. Entrants paid a registration fee to be involved with the event. Ten children participated in a mini-mile for young people.
In the five-kilometre run, Nathan Haukeness had the men's fastest time. Mike Reinheller was second and Bruce Haralson was third. As for the women, Elizabeth Ross was first, followed by Callista Lockerby in second and Sandie Quennelle in third.
There wasn't a competitive element for the three-kilometre walk or the mini-mile.
Team Enbridge member Brittany Burns said the event surpassed her expectations. The Run for Life attracted twice as many people as she anticipated, despite steady rain the day of the event.
Proceeds will be directed to Team Enbridge's Relay for Life entry.
