About this Event

THE LITTLE HERO'S FUN RUN

The Little Hero's Fun Run FUN-draising event is an opportunity for toddlers aged 2 to 4 years old to get active and participate in a fun run event that celebrates them - our Little Hero's!

The library is such an incredible resource for our children and families and all of the money that is raised through the Little Hero's Fun Run event will be donated to the Okotoks Public Library to support their efforts to bring more programs (and physical literacy) to children and families in the area.

This event is organized by Julie Hodge Fitness along with the Okotoks Public Library with support from the Okotoks Optimist Club.

All of the money raised from this event , including your registrations, will be donated to the Okotoks Public Library expansion efforts.

Join us as we foster fitness and physical literacy for kids and help empower them to realize how fun it is to be active. Fun events like this can have a HUGE impact on the memories of a young child, and we're so excited for our little hero's to experience that feeling. The empowerment, pride and "I CAN" they'll feel is second to none.

EVERY LITTLE HERO IS A WINNER!

If you have questions at all about tickets or the event please contact the organizer Julie at 403-651-1088.

Or email contact@juliehodge.ca.

--> HISTORY

Event organizer, Julie was emotionally inspired in the summer of 2019 when leading the warm up for a local adult running event. She vowed to create something that would cater exclusively to toddlers, aged 2-4 years old, so that they too could experience the excitement and fulfillment of accomplishing a physical activity with others cheering them on and the "I did it!" feeling that comes along with it.

And so, the 1st Annual Little Hero's Fun Run FUN-draising event was born!
