Sailors from HMCS Charlottetown launch their 15th annual Run for Wishes on Saturday.
From Saturday through to July 1st, members from HMCS Charlottetown will run across PEI to raise funds for the PEI Chapter of the Children s Wish Foundation.
You can run with them, or meet them after their daily run at a specific Sobey’s location.
To make an online donation, you can visit www.childrenswish.ca/runforwishes or look for sailors carrying “the boot” in your community.
Also, you can visit HMCS Charlottetown on the Charlottetown Waterfront to tour the ship on Friday, June 30th from 2 pm to 7 pm, Saturday, July 1st from 10 am to 7 pm and Sunday, July 2nd from 10 am to 7 pm.
This year’s HMCS Run for Wishes will be made extra special when Wish child, 13-year-old Patrick Murphy is given the title, Commander for a Day, aboard the HMCS Charlottetown as it sails from Charlottetown to Halifax on Monday, July 3rd.
