This morning at 10:30 a.m. participants embarked on our annual five kilometer road race, which began at the NCFC. Those who participated were of all ages, and either ran, biked, walked, rollerbladed, or skateboarded. At the end of the race, a barbecue lunch was held at the Centre, and three awards were given out to our first place finishers. Damian (centre) finished first out of the skateboarders, Nick (right) finished first out of the runners, and Ryan (left) finished first out of the bikers.
In partnership with the Crime Prevention Advisory Committee, the five kilometer road race brings the North Central community together, and by doing so, promotes a positive image of what MacLean’s Magazine once deemed to be “the worst neighbourhood in Canada.” This is our way of preventing crime in North Central, and we could not do it without our sponsors, PHIL CAN and the RUNNING ROOM, participants, and members of our community. Everyone at the NCFC would like to thank those of you who joined us this year, and if you have yet to take part in this event, remember, it takes place every year, so we will see you next year!
