2019 AER 5km Run/Walk & BBQ

2019 AER 5km Run/Walk & BBQ

About This Campaign

Come join us for the AER's 8th Annual United Way 5km Run/Walk on August 14th!

Last year ~60 participants raised $3725 for the United Way—a number we’d like to beat by encouraging some friendly competition. Sign up a team, join one already listed or sign up as an individual runner. The team with the most money raised will earn an official kudos and bragging rights at the race wrap-up! Come dressed to impress (in costume) and cheer on the runners/walkers as they huff and puff the whole five kilometer course for a good cause.

To sign up, click “PARTICIPATE as an individual” or “REGISTER your own team” and join us. Get some exercise and make or raise donations that help solve the #unignorable issues Calgary is facing today!

Can’t run or walk yourself? Support a team or a colleague by clicking “DONATE”. Donations of $25 or more are eligible for tax receipts and 100% of the proceeds will go towards supporting the United Way cause!
