For the 15th year, participants from across Manitoba and beyond gathered to celebrate personal goals as well as community service. On May 5, the 15th annual Foodfare-Winnipeg Police Service Half Marathon was held in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.
This year, the event surpassed the $2 million mark in funds raised. Runners and walkers of all abilities enjoyed a great course including a half marathon, two-person relay and a 5K course. The event had terrific food, secret finisher gifts and the best volunteers around. The race organizers would like to congratulate all participants as well as thank the volunteers, sponsors and the City of Winnipeg for all the support.
