In spite of the weather, the 5th annual Katie's Run for Epilepsy on Sat. July 9 brought out more participants than ever. A total of 171 people took part in three events, with several dogs joining in the 2.5K. Early morning torrential downpours and the threat of a thunderstorm had many people wondering if the event would still go on. But go on it did, with the rain stopping right on cue for the big group warmup on the high school football field, the races, and the speeches and presentations.

New this year, an auction featured three popular big ticket items. An autographed Matt Duchene jersey generated a lot of competition and eventually sold for $850. A signed Maple Leafs hockey stick went for $450 and a beautiful paddle with a hand carved wolf sold for $300.

A total of over $30,000 was raised! Organizers are blown away after far surpassing their ambitious fundraising goal of $25,000. The previous record, set last year, was $18,000. The bar was raised because of an anticipated increase in the number of participants with the new venue (Haliburton High School) and the early fundraising efforts of several moms of epilepsy whose stories were featured on the Katie's Run website and Facebook page beginning in April.

Prizes were awarded to the top three fundraisers. Trystan Bitten, 8 years old of Minden, was the big winner raising a total of $3,425. Christina Hitch of Barrie was second with $2,545.00. Don & Geri Woudstra, event organizers and the parents of Katie, raised $2,250 but passed their prize onto Andrea Mitchell of Oakville who raised $1,925.

A prize for the person who travelled the farthest to be at Katie's Run was awarded to Meghan Mardus of Cologne, Germany.

A humble and grateful THANK YOU to the 171 participants, 80 volunteers and many fundraisers and donors. And congrats to the winners!
