World Wildlife Fund Canada's Kids' Run for Nature is a 1 km, 3 km and 5 km fun run that gives kids the chance to get active in nature and raise funds for the conservation of the wildlife they care deeply about.
The Kids' Run for Nature is coming to parks all across Canada. It is a national movement driven by kids and families who are taking action for nature. From hosting runs in their communities, to lacing up for the 1 km course, there are many ways to get involved.
The Kids' Run for Nature was founded in 2015 by ten-year old environmentalists, Jasmine de Pencier and Jett Jardeleza-Toole.
In their own words: “We created the Kids’ Run for Nature because we care about the earth and want to get kids and their families involved in our great natural community. We want to support our environment and all the amazing species it holds while getting our bodies healthy and active!"
Since then, thousands of runners and their families across Canada have laced up and raised nearly $100,000 for WWF-Canada’s conservation efforts.
