Team members from LEA at the Fork in the Road 5 km trail race and the Sporting Life 10k that both happened in the month of May.
At LEA, we encourage a healthy workforce and our team members live active lifestyles outside of their offices. During the month of May, LEA team members participated in two running events in support of helping children get the most out of their childhood by helping them participate in sports and outdoor activities.
Fork in the Road 5k
On May 5, 2018, members gathered at Woodnewton in Uxbridge, Ontario to run in Fork in The Road, a 5 km trail race that provides participants with the chance to run the standard 5 km course, or extend it up to 8 km of beautiful – but hilly – scenery depending on the path you choose at the “fork.”
Fork in the Road proudly supports Canadian Tire Jumpstart, a national charity that helps financially disadvantaged kids take part in organized sport and recreational activities.
Sporting Life 10k
Five of our members also participated in the Sporting Life 10k on May 13, 2018. The Sporting Life 10k is an annual race that takes place in downtown Toronto, where you run along iconic Yonge Street all the way down to the prominent city waterfront. Sporting Life 10k benefits Camp Ooch, an overnight camp in Canada, that provides children affected by childhood cancer a chance to be kids.
While it was crowded, causing our members to lose sight of each other at the event, they were able to find each other again back at the office to take a photo commemorating their completion of the run.
