The Peachbud Race is the Jewel of the Subaru of Hamilton Niagara Running Series with a charity challenge supporting new radiology equipment for the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital..   

Charity Challenge: Sponsored by Winona Concrete and Pipe Products Ltd.

Everyone can participate!  There are many ways for the community to participate, to name a few;
•  Lace up and register to run, make a personal donation and then set your fundraising goal for collecting pledges.
•  Form a group of runners to compete in the Team Challenge, contending with the Hospital's own Dream Team.
•  Sponsor a runner.
•  Pledge the charity chase runner; the last person to start the race and the amount pledged is multiplied by the number of runners that is passed during the race.
•  Enjoy the charity barbeque at the Peachbud Arena on the day of the race.

Prizes are awarded to runners according to the level of funds raised, and the top fundraising team's name is engraved on the Peachbud plaque in the hospital lobby.
