Our History



Run for Life was founded as a Canadian based non-profit organization in 2002. From a single training group in Cambridge Ontario, Run for Life volunteers started to facilitate a host of programs in a number of Waterloo Region locations.

Run for Life recognized the school as a hub in the community and we strategically developed our programs to support teachers and parent volunteers.

In 2009 Run for Life expanded to offer programs across Canada as we established partnerships with organizations that shared our passion for grass roots fitness.

Run for Life now offers programs in more than 200 locations across Canada and some of our schools connect with communities in the developing world through the Global Outreach (GO) program. In 2010 Run for Life launched Sparks Fly, an innovative program to bring stationary bikes into classroom settings.

We wish you well in your fitness pursuits and hope we can help to keep YOU running!
