Join us as we support the Lighthouse Program for Grieving Children as an official Primary Sponsor of the Mercedes-Benz Oakville 10k presented by New Balance on April 26, 2015. We can’t wait to be a part of this amazing event for the second consecutive year. The Rocca Sisters & Associates are always searching for new and exciting ways to give back to the community and what can be more perfect than the only 10K race in Canada where someone wins a Mercedes-Benz! On April 26th, Mercedes-Benz Oakville will provide the keys to a 2015 GLA 4matic, by way of a random bib draw, to one lucky 10K or 5K finisher.
Starting and finishing on the sprawling park-like campus of 104-year old Appleby College, runners will experience a beautiful route winding its way through picturesque downtown Oakville and includes stunning views of the lakeshore.
In addition to the 10K and 5K run/walk this event also features a Junior Jog and Toddler Trot. What a perfect way to get the whole family involved! A Family Fun Zone will include parachute games, bingo, bubble mania, mini basketball, freeze dancing and more, sponsored by Appleby Camps. Be sure to stop by the Rocca Sisters & Associates tent on event day to warm up with a cup of free hot apple cider & more!
The Lighthouse Program has supported more than 200 grieving children, teens and their families. It’s a wonderful service offered to Halton and Peel region residents. “Often a death of a parent has financial repercussions; this is why we offer our programs free of charge for as long as it is needed.” Currently running at full capacity, Lighthouse hopes donations will help to facilitate a new space. “[They] currently borrow other community spaces to avoid turning children away.” The number of people they serve is expected to double by 2018.
