Splash & Dash is a wonderful chance for families, schools and companies to support an important cause by entering teams in a variety of run-swim-run relay races.
On November 3, 2012, the day of the Splash & Dash, dozens of teams come to the McGill Sports Centre to run and swim for a good cause. Each team is made up of three people; the first person will run a pre-determined number of laps around the indoor track before tagging their team mate. The second person dives into the pool to complete the swimming portion. After finishing their laps, the swimmer will tag the third person, who will then head back to the track to run the last leg of the race.
Before and after the race, there is plenty to do… A DJ will get you grooving while children and adolescents of all ages will enjoy the inflatable games, basketball, yoga for kids, face-painting, and much more. Games, activities and health food are all offered for teams and spectators in the inner track at the Family Fun Expo.
Launched in 2002 by the friends and family of Sarah Cook, who was treated for Ewing's Sarcoma at The Children's, Splash & Dash has grown steadily each year. So far, close to $1.5 million has been raised for the Sarah Cook Fund.
The funds raised support The Children’s Hematology/Oncology Division in a variety of ways. One of the most important projects the event has funded is the complete renovation of the in-patient Hematology/Oncology unit, now known as “Sarah’s Floor”.
