Brett Pearson Run for Your Life Event
The 9th annual Brett Pearson Run for Your Life Event supports citizens of all ages, First Responders and the Canadian Armed Forces by working to bring suicide, substance abuse, PTSD, and mental illness out of the shadows and into the light.
This family oriented event includes a Parade of Life, a 5km run/walk, lunch, entertainment and prizes. The proceeds from the non-profit event will be donated to a charity in support of suicide and substance abuse prevention and/or PTSD and mental health treatment.
This year our Key Note Speakers are Matt Skube, Anchor and Reporter for CTV Ottawa News and Orlando Da Silva, Bencher Law Society Ontario/Senior Crown Counsel Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General. Entertainment will be provided by Emily Burgess and Band.
We are also pleased to announce that the Almonte Legion Branch 240 Pipe Band will be joining us in our Parade of Life this year. During the 1980s Almonte Legion Branch 240 sponsored a local pipe band which operated for approximately two decades. That band dissolved in 2005 and several other small pipe bands within the Ottawa Valley also disbanded. Branch 240 recently took up the challenge of reviving the Pipe Band and attracted more than 40 aspiring members. We are honoured to have them included in our parade in support of the Brett Pearson Run for Your Life Event.
Please join us to show your support!
