    The Salvation Army’s Moncton Community and Family Services laced up with their neighbours to hit the pavement for their annual race, ICE 2 Run.

    The event brought out 123 runners who raised $2918. The I Care Enough 2 Run event supports The Salvation Army’s Kids to Camp program–an initiative that provides under-served children in the Greater Moncton area the opportunity to attend camp during the summer holiday.

    One-hundred percent of the funds raised will go directly towards the cost sending a child to camp. This means that each camper will be provided registration, transportation to the camp, and will be equipped for the week with a sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, linens, as well as new clothing.

    Special Events and Volunteer Coordinator for The Salvation Army in Moncton, Elise Williston says, “It was a beautiful day, and we had a great turnout in support of our Kids to Camp program. We’re grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of this event!”

    ICE 2 Run would not be possible without the support of our incredible community partners. The Running Room provided the online race dashboard and race day support; our partner, 91.9 The Bend who provided advertising; Oulton College who provided four paramedic student on-site for first aid; and HOUSEPARTY, our event DJ for bringing the energy and entertainment. The Salvation Army thanks you all for your support!
