Under sunny bright skies, 843 adults, teens and children ran, walked, jogged or trotted in support of The Lighthouse at the MB10K on Sunday April 24th and raised an astonishing $216,787.00. We are beyond grateful to all of you for helping us as we prepare to turn the lights on at our new Lighthouse home! Team Lighthouse was loud and proud this year.
We would like to thank our wonderful sponsors- Domino’s, The Oakville Club, Greybrook Realty Partners and Cogeco. Your names looked great on the back of the capes and t-shirts that made up the wave of orange. Thank you to all our amazing volunteers for your hours of commitment and support, you are the best! Thank you to our dedicated run leadership team: Deirdre Thomas, Rachel Williams, and Jennifer Stothers- your efforts, loyalty and success never ever fail to amaze us! Special shout out to The Green Machine, TD Canada Trust, and their 30 volunteers who helped on race day. Thank you to our supporters and to all who donated, it all adds up. A big thank you to Bob Aziz who was our #1 Individual donor. Thank you to the 19 Elementary school and 7 High school teams who ran for Team Lighthouse in the 5K school challenge. Huge thank you to the individual teams who ran under The Lighthouse banner and to your team captains who organized you and challenged you to raise more money. Amazing work by Team Gaston who raised $22,720, Team Steph who raised $12,995 and the Welton Walkers with $6,071!
Thank you again! Let’s do it again next year!
