Join us June 14 as we launch a new decade of BRIGHT Run fun at a new party venue – the historic Leander Boat Club, with its fabulous views of Hamilton Harbour.

We’re thrilled about our new partnership with Leander, a bustling community rowing club that has produced a lengthy roster of rowers who have participated in the Olympics, Empire Games, Pan Am Games, World Rowing Championships, Henley Royal Regatta, Commonwealth Rowing Championships and World University Rowing Championships.

Come share our joy and help launch BRIGHT Run 2018 in high style. Try your hand at Bra Pong and win a prize. Enjoy live music, inspired finger food from Quatrefoil Restaurant in Dundas and a cash bar with something for every taste. Get a sneak preview of a threesome of wonderful silent auction items and early bird tickets for a trio of penny sale prizes. Team captains, this is the time to pick up your achievement bracelets, so you don’t want to miss it.

K-Lite’s Sunni Genesco will be on hand to MC the evening, which includes special guest and BRIGHT Run honorary captain Laura Fortino, two-time Olympic Medalist, Women’s Hockey 2014/2018.

Mark Levine (pictured right), our doc with the pink tights, will share some words of wisdom, as will event chair Nancy McMillan and Laura Fortino. Join us in welcoming this year’s survivor spokesperson, the incredibly energetic Georgina Mitropoulos (pictured left), married mom of four-year-old Charlie, restaurant co-owner times two and a breast cancer survivor.

The fun runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Leander, 59 Leander Drive, at the foot of Bay Street on Hamilton’s inviting waterfront. There is plenty of free parking. Be sure to RSVP to kathi@brightrun.ca by June 7 so you can join us for the evening. And feel free to bring a friend along.

Let’s get this party started!
