Join us on September 4th, 2016 in Bayfield, Ontario for a morning of family fun, sport, entertainment, and fundraising — all for a good cause! Virtual High School is working with the Optimist Club of Bayfield to organize this year’s Run4Kids event, a 5 km Run/Walk. All proceeds will be donated to Make-A-Wish® Southwestern Ontario (SWO) in order to grant the wish of a Huron County child with a life-threatening medical condition. Read about Reiko, whose wish was granted after Run4Kids 2015: Helping Reiko’s Wish Come True.

The Run4Kids 5 km Run/Walk began in 2012 in an effort to raise funds in support of children who were coping with cancer. We were inspired by the story of one of our students who has been battling brain cancer for over ten years.

Virtual High School will cover all costs associated with organizing the event and will donate all funds raised. The success of the Run4Kids 5 km Run/Walk charity event depends upon the support and generosity of donors and participants. Additional donations can be made here or on the day of the event.

Make-A-Wish® SWO grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.  Such efforts enrich the lives of these children by providing hope, strength, and joy! The Make-A-Wish Foundation serves 16 Counties across Southwestern Ontario, including Huron County. To learn more, please visit www.makeawishswo.ca.
