For the second year, Sarnia’s muddiest ever event takes place this Saturday (June 11) beginning at 10 a.m. at Canatara Park. Plans include more obstacles than last year as well as an after-party at the Station Music Hall.
The origins of Rebound Sarnia-Lambton go back to 1984, when three people (a parent, a Sarnia resident, and a police officer) wanted to to identify the needs of today’s youth from 8 to 24 years of age. The organizes provides life skills and cognitive skills training along with expressive arts and relaxation techniques. Programs are offered for individual support to 10 week group support to after-school sessions. The mission for this organization is to become a caring partner to youth, by helping them realize and work up to their full potential.
The Dirty Dash is a 5 km “mud run,” where Rebound volunteers help the participants get a little muddy in support of the cause. Some 750 participants are expected to take part in this fun event and prizes will be handed out to individuals or groups raising the most money.
Citizens of Sarnia are encouraged to take a part or experience in this muddy event. Donations are not required but are encouraged. Come on out and see if you would like to participate in next year’s Dirty Dash.
