Jan. 30, 2018, TORONTO365 Sports has selected Make-A-Wish® Canada as its official charitable partner for the Canadian 5K Foam Fest tour in 2018. 

“I am both honoured and humbled to partner with Make-A-Wish for the Canadian portion of The 5K Foam Fest event,” says Tony Smith, CEO, 365 Sports Inc. “The event is suitable for people of all ages and athletic abilities and is a great opportunity for families to help other families in need through fundraising. With tens of thousands expected to participate in the five-kilometre cross-country event, we hope to raise $50,000 to help grant some truly inspirational wishes for children in communities across the country.” 

 

With a festival atmosphere offering activities for everyone, The 5K Foam Fest is a unique obstacle course fun run. With a variety of obstacles and a lot of foam, the run is an exciting challenge event for experienced runners and beginners. Fifteen Foam Fest events are scheduled to take place in cities across Canada from June through September. 

 

“We are thrilled to be involved with The 5K Foam Fest,” says Chris Pon, vice-president, national alliances and branding, Make-A-Wish Canada. “With the help of our generous donors and supporters, along with passionate volunteers and staff, Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Research shows that wishes help children build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illnesses. We thank 365 Sports and its generous participants for helping us move closer to our goal of granting the wish of every eligible child.”   

 

Make-A-Wish Canada will receive all money raised through participant fundraising and revenue generated by the 365 Sports Gear Check at all Canadian 5K Foam Fest events.
