You can sign up for the 5k & 10k or one of the Kids’ Runs and enjoy a fun day on the Island. Sign up before July 31 to take advantage of the early bird special.

Join the cheer squad 

Not a runner but still want to participate? Come out to cheer on your West Park colleagues, family and friends and stay for the best post-race BBQ ever, available free to all runners. Enjoy the family picnic on the grass (bring your own snacks or buy food at the event) while waiting for the awards ceremony to begin. Don't forget to snap a few pictures for Instagram using the hashtags  #westparkstrides and #getyourlifeback . 

Your support 

Proceeds from the Strides for Sustainability Run will go to both the Get Your Life Back Campaign to support environmental sustainability in the new hospital.

A Big Thank you to everyone

Thank you for your support! We can't wait to share photos and report back on the run after the event.
