Bright Run 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 was a huge challenge for everyone, including the BRIGHT Run.
It became clear in the early spring that gathering at the Dundas Valley Conservation Area would not be possible. Instead, the BRIGHT Run pivoted to virtual, its volunteer executive committee jumping on a steep learning curve that led to BRIGHT Run 2020 on Facebook live.
BRIGHT Run participants embraced the virtual experience, coming up with creative ways to celebrate our fundraising achievements together yet apart. They walked, ran, kayaked, rode bicycles, had small socially distanced parades in their neighbourhoods. They sent videos, photos, comments – all chronicling their special versions of BRIGHT 2020.
What a great way to celebrate raising more than $333,000 for BRIGHT Run 2020!
