Since 2012 our family has put our hearts and souls into Katie's Run. Back then we could not have imagined where Katie's Run would go and what it could accomplish. Over the last nine years we have met so many who live with epilepsy, as well as the many loved one lives that live with the challenges of epilepsy or have tragically lost a loved one because of a seizure. We feel blessed to have met you all and to have had a part in supporting each other through these challenges. Katie's Run has been an honour and joy for us to plan and host. However, we have struggled the last few years with a tragic loss in our family and Katie's ongoing health struggles, including the return of seizures. This has taken a toll and it is with great sadness that our family, with the support of the Pogue Family, have postponed this year's event with the hope that it can be held in Haliburton one final time in 2022. We have also decided that the 10th Katie’s Run will be the last. We hope you understand. Please see www.katiesrun.ca for details.
That being said… WE ARE NOT DONE YET!!!
As of early 2021 over $373,000 has been raised through Katie’s Run. Together we believe we can reach our goal of $500,000 before we close the book on Katie’s Run.
Even with no Katie’s Run event this year, we will still be making efforts to raise money for this important cause and we NEED YOUR HELP!
