On Sunday, June 21st, 2009 it will be the YMCA’s 25th anniversary Father’s Day River Run in Medicine Hat. Judging on how successful the recent Relay for Life was, which brought in an amazing 800 people and $290,000 in fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society – it would seem people love running and fundraising in Medicine Hat. Although this running event is a little different, expect a lot of these things to happen this summer. The following is a transcript from the pamphlet if you need more information.
