Rebound aims to get kids On-TRAC
BRIGHTON — Rebound Child and Youth Services invites you to Brighton’s lovely Presqu’ile Provincial Park Oct. 15 for its third annual Red Run.
Subtitled Getting Anger On-TRAC, the event offers the chance for walks or runs on 1K, 5K or 11K routes.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for families, dog walkers and budding runners alike to enjoy a morning stroll or dash through a beautiful park and, at the same time, support the success of children and youth participating in the On-TRAC Program,” the press release said.
On-TRAC is an integrated preventionand-intervention program for young people aged 12 to 25 who are experiencing difficulties with aggression at home, at school or in the community. It makes available to these youth and their families such resources as anger- and emotionalawareness education, skills for building healthy relationships and counselling to assist change so youth can stay On-TRAC for success.
Event co-ordinator Rachel Edwards called it a fun run for a great cause, adding that — besides the running and walking — the event includes swag bags for everyone, prizes for the winners, face painting, scavenger hunts and more.
Registration is $35 for adults, and $25 for students and seniors. You can sign up by visiting www.runningroom.com and searching for Red Run, or call 289-9284112 for more information.
