ONERUN Reaches MillionDollar Milestone

London, Ontario, June 15, 2018 - On Thursday, June 14 at Wellspring London, ONERUN announced their 2018 fundraising total. Needing $91,000 to reach the million-dollar milestone for the organization, ONERUN raised $170,948.80 in this year's ten-school campaign. The money raised through ONERUN goes to cancer patient care programs offered through Wellspring London, London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph's Health Care.

Carriere, the ONERUN Founder and Executive Director stated, "ONERUN is honoured to be offering support to the many families who are affected by cancer and it is our mission that the funds raised will ensure they are given the care they need. ONERUN is about hope, and we want our community to know that they do not have to fight their battle alone. We are so proud of the efforts of our volunteer driven team and the thousands of local high school students and staff who participated. Witnessing the enthusiasm and commitment from our youth has impacted all those who looked on during our two-week event."

What began in 2010 with one survivor, Theresa Carriere, running 100 kms in one day, has evolved into an opportunity for students, staff and community members to honour those who have lost their battle to cancer and to support those who continue to fight. Participating 2018 secondary schools, who in teams of ten, completed 100 kms around the track throughout their school day, included Westminster, Sir Wilfred Laurier, Strathroy District Collegiate Institute, Regina Mundi, Clarke Road, St. Thomas Aquinas, North Middlesex, St. Andre Bessette, H.B. Beal and John Paul II. Some secondary schools were joined by elementary schools, alumni and community members.
