Light it Up Calgary - RunnersShine a light For Cancer Support

Light it Up Calgary (3K/5K/10K) – DATE POSTPONED


To our treasured Light It Up Calgary participants, volunteers, sponsors and supporters:

Given the pressing need by all of us to take preventative actions in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are writing to advise that we are postponing the Light It Up Calgary Run/Walk. We trust that you will understand our need to protect all of you and our community. Your safety and our collective safety is paramount. We have spoken to Eau Claire market who have indicated that they would like to reschedule the event. Please know that we will send additional direction to you as it becomes available.
In the meantime, and because we will miss seeing all of you on April 4th, we would LOVE to suggest that you do a run or walk on your own on this night, send a picture, and tag us on social media: #lightitupwellspringyyc @lightitupcalgary @wellspringcalgary. Or, if you don’t feel like walking or running, consider visiting one of our Calgary landmarks that will be lit to celebrate the night, take a picture, tag us, and share. (We are thrilled to have several Calgary treasures lit up in green and purple in honour of Wellspring Calgary and Light It Up Calgary on the evening of April 4th including: the Calgary Tower and Reconciliation Bridge. We think that this would be an incredible way to enjoy the night, spread the word about Wellspring Calgary and the Light It Up Calgary Run/Walk, and come together (while apart) on the night of April 4th! We hope that you will join many of us who are already lacing up our shoes!

Sincere thanks for your remarkable support, patience and understanding.
