ROAD TO WORLDS RUN

Updated on July 14, 2017

Ringette Canada’s Senior and Junior National Teams will be on the ice for the World Ringette Championships in Mississauga, Ontario from November 27 to December 3, 2017.

A 5K Run/Walk will be held on October 7, 2017 in Calgary, Edmonton, Lacombe, Ottawa, London, Winnipeg, Montreal and Halifax. A 1K walk/ run is available for those under 10. Some locations are working with the Running Room to help to facilitate the event’s success.

All funds raised will go to all of our National Team athletes competing at the 2017 World Ringette Championships.

Senior Team Canada athletes come from the National Ringette League and we have three of these players currently on the roster of the NRL Gloucester Devils (Alison Biewald, Jasmine LeBlanc and Kaitlyn Youldon, shown in the banner above). It is an honour and privilege for these athletes to represent Canada at the premier ringette event – the 2017 World Ringette Championships held in Mississauga. However, these athletes must bear the financial burden, as funds are limited.

The Youldon Group in partnership with Murray Pettem, a long-time ringette coach and builder from Calgary, and Ringette Canada is a proud and active sponsor and host of this fun event.

Local ringette associations should encourage their teams to attend. Coaches – use it as a  team building event.
