The 2019 edition of Lace Up for Diabetes takes place on Sunday, April 28, and today MAHCP is putting the call out for members to participate on their own or with a group of colleagues!
The Lace Up event gets underway at 8 a.m. on April 28 at the Assiniboine Park Conservatory and includes a 10-km timed run, 5-km walk/run, 3-km walk/run and a Kids Fun Run.
Members interested in signing up for this event can do so at the Team MAHCP page:
There are 15 sponsored spots available on Team MAHCP for members and friends. It will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
In addition to food, beverages, medals and prizes for the top fundraisers, members will also get MAHCP T-shirts to wear on the day of the event. If you are one of the lucky 15, please visit the food tent to pick up a free T-shirt.
The Lace Up for Diabetes event is for a wonderful cause; funds raised go towards Diabetes Canada’s programs and services, research, education and advocacy.
For those members who would like to participate in a way that doesn’t involve running or walking, we are looking for volunteers for the food tent. It’s only for a few hours, usually 8:30 to 11 a.m.
If you would like to volunteer in the tent, please contact Team Captain Cheryl Francisco at the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
