Student Volunteer Opportunities

Southlake Foundation would like to invite students to participate in the 2021 Nature’s Emporium Run for Southlake as a means to complete their Ontario High School Volunteer Hour requirements. We recognize the 2020-2021 school year is unlike any other and, with COVID-19 limitations, students are challenged in completing their volunteer hours. Participating in the Run provides a unique opportunity for students to get active, invest in their health, and give back to their community while earning volunteer hours.

To register at no cost please contact Melanie Osmond at to receive a discount code specifically designated for your school. In recognition of their efforts, students will be eligible to receive their race kit, t-shirt and medal once they achieve $50 in fundraising support.
