1. This Saturday marks the 2nd race of the year for the Youth Running Series, a fantastic set of races organized for kids in HRM every year.

The Halifax Dump and Run is an annual event, now in its 11th year, that is student-organized and community run through Saint Mary’s University Environmental Society (SMUES) and Dalhousie’s Office of Sustainability. Their goal is to divert waste from local landfills by collecting items people no longer have use for and selling them (cheap!) at a gymnasium-sized indoor yard sale in order to raise money for charitable organizations that support Halifax’s social and environmental well-being. The money raised all goes to local charities like Adsum, Alice Housing, Feed NS, etc.
