The 2013 Canby Dahlia Run partnered with Mercy Missionaries for their 10K & half-marathon charity runs. Proceeds were graciously divided between The Canby Center, Wilderness International, and Mercy Missionaries to help in serving the needy, homeless, and at-risk people in our communities.
The mission of the organizers of the Canby Dahlia Run?
Canby Dahlia Run’s Mission is to send a message throughout our community and surrounding area that people matter.
Our goal is to put on a premier race, creating a lasting memory for the participants, where all proceeds go to local charities. We desire to reach out in tangible ways to make a difference with the needy, homeless, and at-risk people in our communities.
When you can change the lives of those in need it causes a never-ending ripple in the cycle of giving. The saying goes…Give and it shall come back to you… Come, RUN and share in the giving.
Nearly 500 participants arrived on a beautiful morning August 24, 2013 to challenge the 10K and half-marathon course, and by all appearances, had a great time.
