Love kids, education, helping people, and having fun? Love running? Running slowly? Or even walking?
If so, the Canyons Education Foundation has an event you, your family, and colleagues are going to love. As part of an annual tradition, the Foundation is holding its Virtual Fun Run during the month of February to raise funds for students in need.
Participants in the Foundation’s Run for the Love of Education event will run a 5K — 3.1 miles — on their own and at their own pace sometime between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28. The $20 registration includes a Canyons Education Foundation logo beanie and runner’s bib.
“We love this annual event and all of the good that comes from the money raised,” Canyons Education Foundation Development Officer Denise Haycock said. “The Virtual Fun Run is an enjoyable way to engage with others while helping students in need in our District.”

All funds raised go toward stocking the Canyons District Resource Closet, which provides food, clothing, shoes, school supplies, and hygiene items for students in need.
In addition to the satisfaction of helping others, the Virtual Fun Run offers a variety of benefits — from doing something healthy in conjunction with others; having fun with family, friends and/or colleagues; getting a warm and stylish beanie; and earning the chance to win a prize.
To enter the drawing for a prize, post a photo on social media wearing your CEF beanie and numbered bib. Tag Canyons Education Foundation on Facebook or @CanyonsEdFoundation on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtags #CEF2023RUN and #WeAreCanyons. At least 15 winners will be selected from the posts.
