Pumpkin Spice 5K

Event Summary

A 5K fun run event raising money for the Wishing Well project, bringing safe, accessible water to communities in rural Zambia

Event Details

Dear participants,

Good Neighbors Canada’s Pumpkin Spice 5K fundraiser returns for 2022! Join us as we Step for Water, walking or running the distance of 5K to fundraise for the Wishing Well Project.

The Wishing Well Project supports children in rural Zambia who need to walk up to 4 hours each day in search of water, and who frequently suffer from contaminated water sources and waterborne diseases. Good Neighbors Canada is fundraising to build accessible wells to provide communities with safe, clean drinking water, to keep the population healthy and ensure kids can stay in school.

100% of all proceeds go directly to the costs associated with building the wells. Participants have the option at checkout to cover the transaction fee, a small percentage taken from our website host Race Roster, so no funding is lost.

#Step4Water with us!

Race date: Saturday, October 8th 2022 at Greenway Park, London, ON.

Virtual race: Virtual participants are welcome to complete their 5K from anywhere in Canada on any date throughout October and can join the Runkeeper app to race alongside the virtual participant community.

No matter how you participate, you will be making a meaningful difference to our neighbours in Zambia who will no longer need to make a long commute to obtain safe water.

Included with your registration:

  • Tailor-made #STEP4WATER wristband for all
  • Pumpkin Spice 5K branded t-shirt for those who fundraise over $50

In-person event to include:

  • On-site family fun and competitive team games

  • Awards for completion of the 5K

Join us for a fun day for all ages!
