Road Race does not solicit sponsorship dollars. It is the mandate
of our event to provide for our participants, the very best, hospitality
driven, running event in Canada. To that end, Melissa's provides
and pays for all the rental items, entertainment, food and beverages,
as well as insurance, licenses, t-shirts and cash prizes. Melissa's
Road Race is not a fund raising event but has chosen over the

into the community.

back to the community to $100,000.00 to date. We are proud to
