For the first time in its eight-year history the InsideOut Studio diabetes run, Spring into Action, with day-long events for the whole family, will be held in Sunnybrook Park, with the Sunnybrook Foundation as a new sponsor.
The event kicks off at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 11, with yoga wake up and a group warm up. The main event is a two-, five- or 10-kilometre marathon. Participants can bike, run or walk.
There will also be yoga for kids, a three-legged race and a 100-yard youth dash honouring the Leaside 100 centennial.
Over the past seven years $25,000 has been raised for the Canadian Diabetes Association and food donated to the Flemingdon Food Bank.
Tickets are available through InsideOut for a post marathon barbeque.
The highlight of the evening is a performance by local pop-rock band The Garden.
Until April 30 registration is $25 and includes all events. Registration is $35 from May 1.
