run with your heart, not with your legs

On Sunday, May 31, Kids Cancer Care and the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon are teaming-up for another exciting year. Because of runners and walkers like you, in 2014, we raised more than $8,000 to support the children and families at the heart of our organization. We would love to see you setting new personal bests and crushing your fitness goals at the 2015 Calgary Marathon and it would be an honour if you chose Kids Cancer Care as your charity of choice.
