AAIA Triple A Run/Walk 2009
We are thrilled with the success of our four AAIA Triple A Run/Walk events in 2009!
Thank you to everyone who volunteered, participated and donated in events in Windsor, Whitby, Kelowna and Bedford in May 2009. We had a great time - big turnouts, beautiful waterside locations, and lots of enthusiasm. It was so nice to see families pushing strollers and enjoying themselves alongside both novice and experienced runners of all ages.
We thank the 200 volunteers across Canada who made these events a reality. We could not have done it without you! We are so proud that we were able to add three new events in 2009, making this a truly trans Canada effort, thanks to the sponsorship of King Pharmaceuticals and other national and local sponsors. It really is a wonderful feeling when people come together in such a positive way to raise money for research and education, while raising awareness of allergies, asthma, and anaphylaxis at the same time.
This year we raised $20,000 for research. This money will be transferred to the Canadian Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Foundation (CAAIF).
We hope to do even better next year - please join us! Check www.aaia.ca for updates on dates and locations.
Again, a big thank you to everyone who participated in these events. Enjoy the photos!
