Make-A-Wish® Canada is excited to once again partner with our amazing friends at 365 Sports on the reimagined HoHoHoliday5K. The event has transformed into a nationwide, virtual run or walk that will support life-changing wishes for children living with critical illnesses.
The 2020 Virtual Edition of the HoHoHoliday5K is the most festive FUN run in Canada! This 5km run/walk combines the magic of the holidays with community engagement. “All sectors have been impacted by the pandemic, but for endurance events, like the 5K Foam Fest event which supports Make-A-Wish®, we have been hit hard. When the opportunity to recreate our annual, in-person HoHoHoliday5K run into a virtual nationwide event became an option, we wanted to continue our remarkable partnership with Make-A-Wish as our charity of choice. We know our participants will step up to the challenge to raise funds, especially knowing there are over 400 wishes that are waiting to be granted. This event is a fun and active way for families and friends to safely come together, dress up as Santa, celebrate the holidays and raise some much-needed funds to help grant life-changing wishes” says Michael Lambert, Vice President and General Manager, 365 Sports.
“365 Sports has raised over $200,000 for Make-A-Wish over the years and their support as a national partner is critical in our ability to deliver our mission” says Chris Pon, Vice President, National Corporate Alliances. “With many wishes on hold due to COVID-19, this is the year to give back. We are inspired by our ongoing partnership with 365 Sports and we know that when their generous event participants come together during this time of uncertainty and isolation, they have the collective power to bring a child hope, comfort and precious moments with their family.”
