5K Running & Reading Challenge

The Start2Finish 5K Run for Change, which is the largest children’s run in Canada and beyond, takes place annually at the end of May, and marks the conclusion of the Running & Reading Club program for the year.

The run this year will be held at York University, as well as a number of other community locations nationwide, and will be expanding to additional university campuses across the country in the near future.

The race is coupled with a Jeopardy-style Reading Challenge, followed by an awards ceremony celebrating the children’s accomplishments complete with medals, trophies and prizes, as well as activities such as a fun zone, a reading zone, and lunch for all of the kids.

To find out how you can volunteer at the 5K Running & Reading Challenge or for further information regarding the Start2Finish Running & Reading Club program, please contact Michelle Wray, Director of Community & Volunteer Relations, at 1-888-320-8844 or (905) 319-1885 ext. 206, or
