Thank You Edmonton Superheroes!

We'd like to say a big thank you to all the participants, sponsors and volunteers who made our Superhero Fun Run/Walk such a success on Sunday, June 15, 2014.

The weather was awesome and we think everyone enjoyed being out in our beautiful River Valley on Father's Day. For 9 am on a Sunday, there were tons of creative costumes and people really got into showing off their super skills.  Walkers and runners completed a gentle meandering course that went from Louise McKinney Riverfront Park into Riverdale and back. 

We had a super time hosting the event and hope we can turn this into an annual thing in the years to come. Thanks from Inner City!

30 Annual Fall Classic A Winner!

Thank You All Sponsors, Volunteers and Participants

Thanks to everyone who helped out at the Fall Classic this year. It was a perfect autumn day for an outdoor activity along the river valley. Not too warm and not too cold — just right for a walk or run. We would to say a special special thanks to all those who supported us to ensure the day was successful. That includes:

  • Servus Credit Union for their event sponsorship.
  • The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation for their continued support and providing us with the Taylor Hall autographed Edmonton Oilers sweater. (The sweater was a popular silent auction item after the run.)
  • The Running Room for organizing the run
  • McCallumn Printing for their help with printing of our promotional materials.
  • Hök Nik Creative for helping us get the word out in print and on the web,.  
  • Inner City staff who helped with preparations and on the day.
  • All the volunteers that worked hard to ensure the day went smoothly.

The support and energy that was demonstrated by those listed (and those behind the scenes - such as our Board and many others ) was much appreciated.
