BIG Hearts, the charitable arm of Billyard Insurance Group (BIG), is proud to announce its sponsorship of Niagara Children’s Centre’s Superhero Run. As a “5KM Run Sponsor”, the foundation has committed $1,000 towards the annual event.
The Superhero Run is a fun community awareness and fundraising event that supports the Niagara Children’s Centre and the over 5,300 children in Niagara that the Centre serves. Children and adults of all ages and abilities are encouraged to participate by completing a 1K Family Fun Walk/Roll, 2.5K Run, or a 5K Run. All routes are customizable for the needs of all.
BIG Hearts is a firm believer in supporting organizations and initiatives that positively impact children and families in Canada. The sponsorship of the Superhero Run is another step in the charity’s ongoing commitment to making a difference in the lives of those who need it most.
Cindy Billyard, Executive Director of BIG Hearts, expressed her enthusiasm for this partnership, stating, “We are delighted to support the Niagara Children’s Centre’s Superhero Run, as it aligns perfectly with our values and commitment to enhancing the well-being of vulnerable children. At BIG Hearts, we believe in the power of community and the strength that comes from supporting one another. This sponsorship reflects our dedication to building a stronger, more inclusive community for all.”
“When local businesses, such as Billyard Insurance Group, support the Superhero Run, it demonstrates how Niagara is embracing a more inclusive community. Their commitment to seeing children and youth be their best ensures that we can continue to meet the therapy and support needs of families in the region,” said Oksana Fisher, CEO, Niagara Children’s Centre.
This year’s Superhero Run takes place at Brock University on Saturday, October 14. Registration will open at 8:30 AM, with the first run times commencing at 9:30 AM. More information on the run and details on how you can register or donate are available here.
