About the event
Aspire's Push & Pace is a special day for families and community members of Central Alberta. Families and individuals that register for the run/walk will have the opportunity to raise funds through pledges. This year, you can register online at The Running Room, in person or by phone at Aspire.
What would an event be without food? As usual, the accessible walk/run will follow with a free family BBQ. There will also be entertainment for the children including a bouncy castle, face paint, park play and more! Children, parents, grandparents, friends, community members, volunteers, and sponsors are all welcome to gather in the sunshine and enjoy this event in support of Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre.
