Residents in Swift Current were ready to return to the Chinook pathways for the Southwest Run for Shelter that was brought back to the city on Saturday morning.
Kayla Myers, committee member with the Southwest Run for Shelter, said that it was wonderful to see the event come back for the sixth year, after a two-year break.
“We started out six years ago raising funds for the operations at Dorie’s House and after two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are happy to be back and supporting Doris House and having runners come out and enjoy and have a good time and utilize our beautiful Chinook pathways here in Swift Current,” she said.
Racers were able to sign up for different distances including 2K, 5K, 10K, and 16K.
Myers added that plans are already in the works for next year's event.
“Be sure to check us out next year, we're always planning ahead and have lots of fun ideas for 2023,” she stated.
Each participant had to fulfill a minimum pledge, with all the money raised going directly towards supporting Dorie’s House.
