Ted's Run for Literacy, the litte race that could, takes place this Sunday in Kildonan Park, and McNally Robinson Booksellers is happy to host their kit pick up this Saturday, September 28th between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Kit pick up will take place in the travel alcove of our Grant Park location, the southwest corner of the store near the mall entrance. There will be limited kit pick up on race day, so please stop by the store if you have the chance, but if you do require a race-day kit pick up, please expect lineups of 10 to 15 minutes.
By the way, if you haven't already, there's still time to register for all three events — the 2km Fun Run/Walk, and the 5km and 10km Runs.
Ted's Run for Literacy aims to stop the revolving door of childhood poverty by building confidence in children living in under resourced Winnipeg neighbourhoods. All money raised through registration is used to support Can U and Learn and Play; two non-profit organizations who hold similar values.Categories: Site News, Winnipeg, Event News
