Expect to see some zany costumes running around the Otter neighbourhood on Sunday afternoon in the third annual AOK Fun Run.
“We’ve wanted the public to join us on this,” said Pastor Dauncey, with the Church in the Valley and Acts of Kindness Ministry.
The fun in this fun run comes from the apparel.
“We encourage people to dress up in a costume,” he explained.
The five-kilometre run is participation by donation and the funds go to the AOK projects.
“We raise money to do community projects,” he said.
That includes the Extreme Home Repair, the single moms oil change, vehicle donations to needy families, the Christmas party for kids, and more.
Each year it has attracted about 60 people.
“We’d like to grow it,” he said.
People can walk or run and all ages are welcome but parents must accompany younger children. People should choose costumes that allow for the running/walking.
Registration begins at 3:30 p.m. with the run kicking off at 4 p.m. It starts with a lap around the church, at 23589 Old Yale Rd., then the participants head out into the neighbourhood.
There will be a barbecue by donation after the run, and there’s prizes from sponsor Peninsula Runners for such things as costumes and hidden times.
