December 5, 2014 - More than one hundred staff and students from St. Charles College will cross the finish line tomorrow morning at Science North.  They will be participating in the Santa Shuffle 5k race to support  Salvation Army programs for children and families at Christmas time.

The students and staff raised more than 25-hundred dollars to help the campaign making them the largest student group to participate and the largest school donator to the cause.

They will also be running alongside a special guest.  Kate Gustafson is a high ranking Canadian marathon runner.  Gustafson motivated the students this morning (Friday, December 5th) at the cheque presentation at St. Charles College.  She talked about how she trains 120 km./week.  She said “running is a discipline that encourages a healthy balanced diet, time management skills.  If you have a passion whether it be art or sport, running can be an amazing compliment to your life.”
