Planning Process


"Our school running club participated in the June 1st school division run and I just wanted to tell you how incredibly well-organized it was. From the no-hassle express ETS bus to and from the site, to being chaperoned from one station to the next, etc., everything was perfect. Using a bunch of young, enthusiastic U of A students was a boon as well. Usually the first time something is organized, you can expect to find a few snags, but I can honestly say, it was perfectly run. Great job! We are looking forward to next year's event."
Sherri Kessels, Teacher

"Thank you for all the organizing you did for the Little Big Run. It was very well organized. We had such a great time doing the warm up and the lead up activities before the run. The 1km path was very well shaded with such beautiful surroundings for the hot day we had. What a great location! The treat at the end of the race hit the spot for the students. Everyone had such a fantastic time and I would like to thank you again for all you did. I hope the Little Big Run will continue to be sponsored by the City of Edmonton next year because we will definitely be going."
Lorraine Hoeber, Teacher

"I just wanted to tell you that we were really impressed with how well organized the activities were for The Little Big Run. The students enjoyed the run and the entire morning."
Katy Rubis, Teacher

"Just wanted to say thanks for the event. The route was great and I look forward to running again next year!"
Sunil Agnihotri, Participant

"Big Brothers Big Sisters Edmonton & Area is so pleased to have been part of the first annual Little Big Run. Our children will benefit from the new athletic programs supported by the funds raised. Our shared vision of encouraging better health for young and old, Big and Little, is one we hope to promote together for many years to come."
Liz O’Neill, Executive Director - Big Brothers Big Sisters Edmonton & Area

"You all did a fabulous job on the LittleBig Run for the school children. The teachers were very impressed with the organization and the leadership from the University Of Alberta students. It was a great day to promote physical activity with our youth! I look forward to working with you again next year!"
Cheryl Shinkaruk, Physical Education / Health Consultant Edmonton Catholic Schools

"I continue to receive very positive messages from our schools. Looking forward to a bigger event next year. I’m sure that all of this years schools will be bringing more students and we should pickup a few more new schools. Congrats on the Sat/Sunday Little Big Run Events, 1200 runners on Sunday is a great start."
