Hello fall! On a crisp September morning, the 5th Kitchener Kids with Cancer Run & Walk was the place to be. Thank you for your support!
What we love about our sport is the opportunity it provides for people to come together and rally around a cause. Sometimes it’s the trail, or the distance, but during pediatric cancer awareness month, this one is special.
This race is an annual fundraiser Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO), and it shows through every aspect of the event. From the committee led by Dr. Jodi Rosner, this event is planned around the heroes of pediatric cancer. Again this year, records were smashed, with over 550 participants and over $68,000 raised!

Wow! We are absolutely blown away by how amazing this morning’s event was. Whether you ran, walked, volunteered, came out for moral support, or anything in between….we are just so grateful you came. Our turnout and fundraising totals were both significantly higher than last year, and it’s all because of you guys. Together, we are going to make a huge difference in the lives of children and their families facing cancer head on. #pogo #kwpogo2018 #kitchener #waterloo #run #walk #fundraising #runwaterloo #fightcancer
Congratulations to the runners and walkers of today’s 5 km and 10 km events, and 5 km untimed event. Full results are available at results.runwaterloo.com.
All of our photos will be tagged directly in the results – check them out – if there is a camera next to your name, you were tagged in a photo. We have uploaded only a sneak-peek of a few dozen photos; thousands more free photos will be found at our Flickr page later this week!
Although we’ve been a part of this race for several years now, this was our first official year with Run Love. We had a great year working with our charity partners to create memorable running events that are major fundraisers. Thanks for having us along for the ride!
