Ugly Sweater 5K run raised $1,000 for WRH Neonatal Unit January 30th, 2013!

Hosted by the Optimist Club of Windsor, the event raised funds for the neonatal intensive care unit at Windsor Regional Hospital.

“The event was meant for people of all abilities, and about 80 runners and walkers participated”, said Optimist Club president Stephane Beaudin.

The course went from the Riverfront Festival Plaza to Centennial Park and back raised $1,000 for the NICU.

"Everybody has an ugly sweater that just kind of sits there so this was an opportunity to bring them out and see how bad they really are,'" said Beaudin. "Beaudin said the event will be held every year and hopes for more participants next year”.
