Fun Run - Celebrating 30 years!
The 30th Annual Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) Fun Run was a great success!
Over 500 alumni, students, faculty, staff and members of the greater community took part in this year's Fun Run. It was a chilly day but many still came out to the run! Expert bib tag timing was provided to participants in the 5km race, but the fun aspect of this annual event was still evident in the crazy costumes, face painting and balloon animals.
Feridun Hamdullahpur, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Waterloo welcomed participants to campus in celebration of the 30th annual AHS Fun Run, the longest standing reunion tradition. James Rush, Dean of Applied Health Sciences, further wished all the participants well in their race and welcomed two time Olympic gold medallist and AHS alumna Heather Moyse (BSc '00) back to campus as our very special Grand Marshal.
Runners and those cheering them on were entertained by The Water Boys, Waterloo's male a cappella ensemble and AHS alum Dave Partridge known as DJ Furious George kept everyone moving to the music. Carissa Truax from Movati Athletics led everyone through warm-ups, accompanied by our own AHSUM student society executive.
$2700 was raised for UW Fitness' Teens in Motion program. Teens in Motion is an exercise program for teens struggling with their weight (12-16 yrs of age) to encourage participants to be more active, give them the confidence and skills to try new activities in their school or community and educate them on the importance of healthy eating.
Be sure to join us again next year for our 31st year of the AHS Fun Run on Saturday, October 1, 2016!
