THE LITTLE HERO'S FUN RUN!
1st Annual Fundraising event in Okotoks for kids 2-4 years old.
The Little Hero's Fun Run FUN-draising event is an opportunity to combine the benefits of physical literacy for toddlers with supporting our community and helping raise funds to support the Okotoks Public Library in their expansion efforts.
The library is such an incredible resource for our children and families and all of the money that is raised through the Little Hero's Fun Run event will be donated to the Okotoks Public Library to support their efforts to bring more programs (and physical literacy) to children and families in the area.
The money raised from this event will be donated to the Okotoks Public Library expansion efforts.
