Inaugural I Run & Rock Event Huge Success!
On June 1st PACE sponsored the i Run & Rock 1, 5 and 10km run which took place in Newmarket, Ontario. In addition to the run, there was a concert featuring Canadian artists Glass Tiger.
The event was to recognize first responders in the Police, Fire, EMS and Military services and their struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
PACE Vice President Dan Coldwell said “Our community is very lucky to have people like Frank, Nicole and Lisa. By their actions, they obviously care about people, the community in which we live and most certainly the community of first responders. When we were approached to support this event, it was a very natural fit because PACE has the same values.”
Plans are already underway for next year’s event.
