The Star Phoenix Bridge City Boogie 2011

The Star Phoenix Bridge City Boogie 2011The 5th Annual Star Phoenix Bridge City Boogie will be held June 12, 2011. Miren Luczka, Race Director writes: For those of you new to the event, The Bridge City Boogie is a 2km, 5km and 10km wellness event with emphasis on fun, fitness and community. The Boogie is all inclusive with age categories reflecting the diversity of participants. Whether you're a seasoned runner or a first time walker, you'll have no trouble finding an event that suits your fitness goals. I think you'll be surprised by the beauty of the area and delighted by the runners and volunteers you'll meet on the course. To make the Boogie happen, there will be over 550 people volunteering their time before, during and after the race to help make your Boogie experience a positive one. The Bridge City Boogie is all about giving back to the community and donates 100% of the proceeds to local charities. We're proud to announce that in 2010 The Boogie donated over $89,000 to three charities: Raise-a-Reader, the Saskatoon Crisis Nursery and the Boys and Girls Club of Saskatoon. This year we're happy to announce that we’ve added the Saskatchewan Children's Festival to the list of beneficiaries. While all money raised from the Boogie goes to charity, it is important to point out that participants are only required to pay the registration fee as our event is not a pledge-a-thon
