The annual Band on the Run road race and music festival has once again raised thousands of dollars in support of inclusion in our community. As of publication time, the event has netted $12,006 for Community Living Huntsville (CLH).
The race, which features musicians stationed along the routes to encourage the runners, had 1,573 participants this year, some of them raising funds for the cause.
The top fundraiser was Cameron Edwards, with $1,600 raised, followed by Councillor Nancy Alcock with $645. CLH’s Team Inclusion in Motion was the top team fundraiser with $3,950.
Community Living Huntsville had issued a challenge to the community—help them exceed their fundraising goal of $2,500 and some of their staff, clients and supporters would dye their hair in Community Living’s colours of green and blue. True to their word, they gathered at Alberto Salon and Spa on Friday, June 8 for their transformation.
Race results will be available at bandontherun.ca.
The race was followed by a music festival in River Mill Park that kicked of with Soul45, a Huntsville High School Song Project alumni group, and Keep the Faith, a Bon Jovi tribute band. Headliners Jonesy wrapped things up with an array of hits that had the crowd dancing and singing along.
