While Run Canada Month isn’t until April, now is a great time to support Canada’s Olympic marathoners through Athletics Canada.
Until January 30, 2012, Athletics Canada will match contributions to the Run Canada initiative to a maximum of $10,000. The money support Canada’s Olympic marathoners in their build up to the 2012 London Games so they will be prepared to compete with the world’s best. This will include things like high altitude training camp, and being able to have their coaches and therapists with them.
100% of funds donated to the project through Athletics Canada will go straight to the Run Canada Initiative, and you will receive a charitable tax receipt. For more information, visit Run Canada, or download the donation form here.
Keep an eye on iRun.ca and iRun Magazine for more information on Run Canada Month as April draws nearer!
