Route Map

Step one is where you would go to register to fundraise for Grandview Kids. Last year, together we raised close to $38,000 and had the largest amount of participants to Run, Walk and Roll for Grandview Kids.

If you commit to fundraising a minimum of $100 per person for RUN AJAX in support of Grandview Kids, you qualify for FREE event registration at RUN AJAX!

Step two allows you to pick the race you want to Run, Walk or Roll for at RUN AJAX.

Team Belanger

Team Belanger runs for our Son, Brother & Student Owen B! Grandview has supported Owen to be the best he can be. So we wanted to show our support for Grandview. Owen was born to have fun and what is more fun than a tutu?

Owen completed his biggest challenge September 2016 at the Run Ajax's 1k kids run. Where he walked hands free the whole 1k. Having Spastic quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy this was a tremendous milestone. He set this very high goal to prove to himself that he Can do anything he tries!!!

TEAM TLC will be walking the 5k for Grandview Children’s Center at RUN AJAX in September 2017. We have been participating in this event since 2014. We walk not only to give back to Grandview, but also to teach our children the value of charity and the spirit of giving

As team Noelle, we thought it would be brilliant if we could get our family and friends who support Grandview to come together to do a 5km walk. The thinking behind this came once people saw the progress Noelle was making and started asking more about Grandview. We plan to continue walking annually because it is always rewarding to see all the Grandview kids out and crossing that 1km fun run. Thank you Grandview for always reminding us of how lucky we are to have you in our lives. You guys are the best!
We really do encourage others to come out and try!

Melodie - A proud half marathoner!

Run Ajax changed my life! Another Grandview Mom and I got together and started training months in advance and we finished the half marathon! Never had I thought of myself as a half marathoner. Our children were able to have fun competing in the 1km Kids Run and be there at the finish line to cheer us on. Absolutely life changing and all while supporting Grandview kids!
