The meeting point for both events will be behind City Hall. The field is located between City Hall and Lisgar Collegiate and is best accessed off Lisgar Street or exiting City Hall from the atrium area. Look for the red balloon.


Our Heart Wise Exercise Program is setting up a group of patients, alumni, staff, and families and friends to participate in the upcoming Race Weekend! Team members will be supported along the way, with training tips, a group warm up and company during the race if you choose.  Choose from a 5 or 10 km run or walk.
