On Thursday, the annual Humber 5k fun run/walk event will be taking place at Humber North campus from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. with the proceeds from this year’s 14th annual fundraiser donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.

The event is a place for students to come out, have fun, enjoy either a walk or run, and to raise funds for a good cause.

The Avro Post reached out to, IGNITE vice president-elect Megan Roopnarine and Board of Director-elects Erika Caldwell and Julia Ciampa for comment.

Another University of Guelph-Humber student and KinSoc member, Jessica Knowles, said “I think that Humber’s 14th annual fun walk/run event is a fantastic initiative. Not only are proceeds given to support two great causes – the leukemia and lymphoma foundation – but the event also offers an incredible oppertunity to unite the GTA community.”

“As an undergraduate student pursuing studies in the domain of kinesiology, I am cognizant of the importance of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle, so I’m really happy to hear that there is an annual event on campus that encourages everyone to be physically active”

Knowles, as a member of KinSoc represents the university community surrounding both mental and physical well-being. KinSoc frequently hosts both physical events such as the “GH Games” with an impressive turnout, as well as mindfulness talks and “mood walks” around campus and the Humber North arboretum.

“I’m excited to know what the turnout of this event will be like. I highly encourage everyone that is available to participate on April 11th to do so!”
