Following the incredible success of the3rd annual M.A.D 4 MADDIE event, we are confident that this event will continue to grow each year. Approximately 500 students and runners joined us in Hamilton, PEI and Victoria to engage in a day designed to inspire, empower and motivate. With an incredible line-up of performers and speakers, this event will not only move us to run 5 km but move us to action by challenging, educating and inspiring.
As an added incentive in inspiring you to raise as much money and awareness as possible, Craig Keilburger, Founder of Free The Children, is offering a spot at the Toronto Take Action Academy this summer to the participant who raises the most money for the M.A.D. 4 MADDIE event.

Charity run keeps Maddie's wish alive

Posted on October 17, 2011

(May 28, 2008) Take a run, have some fun and learn a little Swahili while helping fund school supplies for kids in Kenya. That's the idea behind M.A.D. 4 Maddie, a five-kilometre fun run and interactive African experience Saturday at Pier 8 at the foot of James Street North. The activities honour the memory of Maddie Babineau, the 15-year-old Hamilton girl who died last May after a three-year fight with a rare form of cancer. Babineau gave away her Children's Wish Foundation wish to get almost anything she wanted, and asked to build a school in Kenya. Then she successfully set about raising money for a well beside the school so children could attend classes and still fulfil their water-hauling chores for their families. Babineau's mother, Sharon Babineau, says the idea behind the run is to have fun and see a little of what life among the Masai in Kenya is all about. There will be activity stations where participants can face versions of challenges that are part of daily life in the region. "We believe this will be the first of many M.A.D. (Making a Difference) runs," she said. Registration for the run is at Pier 8 starting at 8 a.m. The run (or walk, if you like) starts at 9 a.m. There will be activities and speakers -- including representatives of Free The Children, the organization that built the school Babineau requested -- until about noon. Anyone looking for eats can stroll into the first Hamilton Waterfront Wingfest, going on at Pier 8 at the same time. Organizers of the M.A.D. run would like participants to donate or bring in $30 in sponsorships, because $30 will buy a year's worth of school supplies for a Kenyan child.

Maddie's Story

"Two years ago Maddie Babineau told the Children's Wish Foundation she'd rather build a school in Africa that have a big screen TV or a trip to Disneyland. But long before that, long before she was sick, friends in her Ottawa neighbourhood thought that Maddie just might be an angel." Read more
