DPCDSB's 32nd Anniversary ShareLife Wilf Hartzenberg Memorial Walk/Run/Roll event slated for Sunday, September 29
On Sunday, September 29, commencing at 10:00 a.m., the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board will launch its 2019 ShareLife employee fundraising campaign with one of its most popular events, the annual Wilf Hartzenberg Memorial Walk/Run/Roll event.
Over 300 Dufferin-Peel staff, family members and friends are expected to tackle either a 4K or 5K course that starts outside the board's Catholic Education Centre at 40 Matheson Boulevard West in Mississauga. Participants will continue west along Matheson before looping back to the finish line via Avebury Road and Sandstone Drive.
Now in its 32nd year, the family-oriented event features a morning mass, activities for children, BBQ and draw for prizes. The event is open to all Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board employees, their families, and friends. The annual event is named in honour of Wilf Hartzenberg, a former teacher and principal with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. An avid runner, Hartzenberg represented Canada at the Masters' Games. A member of the Brampton Sports Hall of Fame, Hartzenberg passed away at the age of 75 in 2000.
Every year the board holds various school and board events and activities to raise funds for community agencies through ShareLife.
