About Run For Canada
Great things for Canada. Great things for our athletes.
Hbc has made a commitment to raise $2.9 million for Canadian Athletes every year for the next six years. A large portion of this will be raised via the Hbc Run for Canada.
The Hbc Run for Canada is a 10K Run, 3K Walk and 1K Kids Run taking place on July 1st in fifteen communities across Canada. Hbc stores will be lending strong support to the Hbc Run for Canada, and over the next few months they will be focused on raising $5,000 for each of the 200 athletes.
In 2007, the Hbc Run for Canada raised $2 million, thanks to the many Canadians who participated in our 2007 event by running, walking, volunteering, and fundraising, all in support of our Canadian athletes.
This year we will continue to focus on our up and coming athletes in need of funding to compete and represent Canada at an international level. There are talented athletes that have incredible potential to succeed at the Paralympic, Commonwealth and Olympic Games. They need our help to make sure they get the training, equipment and opportunities necessary to be recognized as world-class athletes.
