• Run 4 A Cause

    The Millarville “Run To The Farmers’ Market” Half Marathon is pleased to partner with local, registered charities.

    As you are guided through the registration process, consider donating to one or more of our partner charities and, better yet, join one of their fundraising teams of runners/walkers.  If you’ve decided to lend a hand, it’s easy from there to direct friends, family and corporations to pledge your run, lending financial support to one of our associated worthwhile causes. No pledge sheets, no collecting of money. Use your Facebook and Twitter pages to gather help for your chosen cause.

    Your hard work on race day can make a difference in your community.

    We will be adding more charity names as we move forward so come back and check us out. You can associate your run with a charity later on, not just when registering.

    If you would like your registered charity to be part of our “Run 4 A Cause” program in 2016, please contact us. We would love to help your worthwhile cause benefit from our race event.

    Rowan House

    Rowan House (Region 3 Family Based Care Society) is a short-term women’s emergency shelter located in the Foothills of Southern Alberta. Our mission is to provide crisis intervention, long-term support and education for those affected by family violence in rural communities. In doing so, Rowan House works to fulfill its vision: that every person is safe and secure, and lives without abuse.

    We provide women and their children a safe environment that nourishes feelings of self-worth, lends an opportunity for healing and personal growth, while facilitating transition back into the community – all at no cost to them.

    We also provide Outreach services to women and children who have experienced abuse or are at risk of experiencing abuse and Preventative Education for schools and community groups.

    If you’re running in the Half Marathon, please set up a personal pledge page and raise monies in support of Rowan House.
