We do hope that everyone is doing well and managing in these uncertain times. We’ve been closely following the provincial government’s ‘framework for reopening the province’.
Our goal has always been to create an inclusive charitable event that brings community together. With that in mind the guidelines around relaxing restrictions on public gatherings continues to evolve, but with no real timelines for us to adequately and safely organize and host our race.
The health and well-being of our amazing volunteers and race participants is our number one priority and out of an abundance of caution, the 2020 Muskoka Rocks Races in support of Camp Oochigeas, originally scheduled for Sunday August 2, has been cancelled.
For the past 16 years, the incredible community of Muskoka Rocks has raised over $750,000 for Camp Ooch. Ooch has had to move all of their 2020 spring and summer programming online, we encourage you to show your support and consider sponsoring their Camp-In-A-Box program. Every $100 raised sends a camper a box with all the supplies they’ll need for their week at virtual Ooch this summer. For more information, or to donate, click here: https://ooch.org/give-to-ooch/
While we’ll miss your smiles, and celebrating your finish line memories we want to ensure that everyone stays healthy. We want to say a big thank you to our tireless volunteer crew; our fabulous running community; generous sponsors and the Minett (Muskoka) community for being there for us for 16 years.
Please take good care of yourself and others.
Lynn & Laurel
