WHAT

Ojibway Prairie hosts 4 000 species, of which 160 are at risk, including 6 endangered and 11 threatened in Ontario. It represents Canada’s, and the world’s, most endangered ecosystem. Save Ojibway is trying to protect this rare and unique ecosystem for future generations.

A 5km Run/Walk for Mother Earth and Friends of Save Ojibway will take place May 9th, 2015 at Malden Park from 9am to 12pm, to raise funds to protect Ojibway for future generations.

All participating children will receive a special treat from Sweet Revenge Bake Shop.

1 km Kid Dash 9:00 am ($10 entry fee)
