Events | Making a difference with i Run and Rock

Now that the warmer weather has arrived, it’s finally time to get outside and start enjoying the beautiful weather. Time to weed the garden, paint the house, enjoy a patio… but what about making a difference too? The marathon season is upon us and it seems that every other day runs and walks are taking place across Canada in support of some amazing causes. One of these walks is the i Run and Rock taking place on Saturday May 31st 2014 and is an all day event you won’t want to miss.

So what is i Run and Rock? Founded to help raise awareness and funds for emergency workers suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), this event brings together people of all kinds. After a 1, 5 or 10 km run, the day is meant to celebrate life and encourage awareness for a cause that too often gets overlooked.


This is one that I feel very strongly about and I am encourage you to come join in to help raise funds and rock out on May 31st with three-time JUNO Award winners Glass Tiger!
