Our 2022 Goal: Reached

To raise money and purchase winter military boots PatriBoots Otaman (manufactured in Ukraine) and military socks CovertThreads (manufactured in USA) for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Winter is the toughest season of the year when everything is cold, especially feet! To make sure that our defenders’ health is in good shape and they continue to stay strong and defend Ukraine, we need to supply them with winter boots! We, here in Canada, know everything about freezing cold weather conditions and tough winters! It’s very important to support Ukrainian defenders and provide them with winter boots.



Each registered runner will receive a specially designed medal mailed directly to their home! And you too! We will mail the medal to the address included in the registration form within 4 weeks.

The design of the medal is the result of creativity of two Ukrainian designers Anton Masalov and Mariia Meshta. And it has already become legendary!

Anton’s idea behind this design reflects the historical union of Canada and Ukraine, which he expressed in the merging of the Canadian maple leaf and Ukrainian trident.

Mariia's idea features blue and yellow dots as representation of fleeing Ukrainians, who were forced out of their homes and cities that were destroyed. Although many Ukrainians are now spread around the world, they continue to help daily in order to bring our victory closer.
