After 13 years, the Yorkville Run has grown into quite the affair, rallying both local and international sponsorship support, and raising funds for over 30 local charities. The charity docket ranges from cancer research and youth drop-in centres, to animal welfare organizations — making the longstanding run a unique alternative to the more typical single-focus charity events.
On the other side of the coin, the event’s title partner Constantine Enterprises remains in this position for six years running, alonside a wide range of partners and suppliers including Peloton, Rimowa, Four Seasons, Eataly, and even us here at SHARP.
This year’s run once again saw a significant turnout, with running groups of all ages and backgrounds putting heel to pavement for the 5k sprint. While not the brightest weather, an overcast day is a safer situation for runners than 30-degree sunshine. The Constantine Yorkville Run has also yielded some great results from a fundraising standpoint — at present the fundraising total is above $465,000, with hopes of clearing the $500k mark before fundraising closes on September 30th.
Take a moment and visit the fundraising pages before it’s too late. All of these local community charities could use your support.
