Yesterday, thousands gathered as downtown streets shut down for the only 10k race in Canada where someone wins a Mercedes-Benz.
We were thrilled to team up with Mercedes-Benz Oakville as an official primary sponsor of the Mercedes-Benz Oakville 10K presented by New Balance Oakville.
Maintaining tradition, keys to a 2014 CLA were provided to one lucky race finisher by way of a random bib draw during the awards presentation following the race events.
It was a bit cold at the start of the morning but we weren’t about to let runners or onlookers feel the chill. Within the eventful athletes’ village, we offered hot apple cider, free compliments of the Rocca Sisters. This was our way of saying, ‘thank you,’ to the community for making us #3 in Canada for Royal LePage out of 14,500 agents nationwide in 2013.
On this race day, there was something for just about everyone. Runners experienced a beautiful route winding its way through picturesque downtown Oakville, which included stunning views of the lake and ended at the 102-year old sprawling park-like campus of Appleby College.
In addition to the 10k and 5k run/walk, teens participated in the Martin Group at National Bank Financial 5k High School Challenge.
The little ones also had a chance to experience some fun, while participating in the 1k Junior Jog and the 300m Toddler Trot.
For the Rocca Sisters, giving back to our local communities is our passion. We would like to thank everyone who participated and came out to lend their support. The Oakville 10K provided valuable awareness and vital funds to support the development of the new state-of-the-art Oakville Hospital. Raised funds will help put essential equipment in the hands of caregivers and help improve the health of the Oakville community.
