(London, Ontario) – On World Cancer Day, Tuesday, February 4, ONERUN announced the details of its 2020 campaign. At the 2020 kickoff event hosted by Palasad London South, ONERUN introduced the participating schools and local runners for their 10th anniversary campaign. This year, ONERUN donations will be in support of Wellspring and ChildCAN.
On June 19, 2020, Theresa Carriere will once again be running 100kms in one day. This year, ONERUN will add a special twist for their 10th anniversary. Ten local cancer survivors will join Theresa by running 10km each of their own to show unity and inspire hope for those battling cancer. ONERUN is also actively recruiting national survivors to participate.
“Inviting local and national runners for our 10th anniversary will provide even greater community engagement and awareness, with the hope more families dealing with cancer will be helped”, added Project Manager Paulette Soscia.
The launch also included the unveiling of ONERUN’s proudly updated logo. The logo, created by Graphic Designer Amanda McCallum, maintains ONERUN’s traditional design, however, it has an updated lavender colour scheme that more accurately reflects ONERUN’s mission. The goal of the update was to show that ONERUN proudly supports people affected by all types of cancers, which is indicated through lavender. ONERUN started with one breast cancer survivor in 2010, which was the purpose of the original pink colouring. Throughout the past ten years, ONERUN has evolved into helping all cancer fighters and survivors and has donated over one million dollars to this important cause.
ONERUN Founder and Executive Director, Theresa Carriere stated, “Wow, 10 years! Hard to believe. ONERUN has seen a lot of changes over the decade but the important things remain constant; the hope ONERUN provides to families dealing with cancer, the overwhelming generosity of our community and the gratitude we have for our many supporters. Together, we continue to fight and together we will celebrate our victories!”
