Caleb’s Superhero Walk Run Fly

It’s September. Know what that means? CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH 🎗 Every September, Caleb’s Courage hosts “Caleb’s SUPERHERO Walk Run Fly” at Petersfield Park. It’s an inspirational, fun-filled family event to raise awareness for childhood cancer, to honour the beautiful faces and brave stories of our local little heroes, AND to raise important funds for families of children with cancer and other critical illness. It is a moving experience, both heartbreaking and heartwarming - an event we are proud to say has become very special to our community. For the second year in a row, due to COVID-19, Petersfield Park will be not be filled with cool capes and sweet superheroes 😢. The good news is, we’re going virtual! From Sept 23-26, we can fly around our own sidewalks, trails, parks, and schoolyards - all while helping “little superheroes fighting big battles”. The BEST part is you can do it from ANYWHERE.
