Who We Are
Runanthropic is a community-based volunteer run sporting and athletic organization. Our mission is to promote an interest in athletics, sports, and recreation, and to coordinate and organize running events (5K, 10K, Virtual events, etc.) which raise money for charity. Runanthropic is an incorporated not-for-profit organization. Runanthropic achieves its goals by organizing and operating its signature event the Art In Motion 10K/5K/2K.
Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion
We believe that running is for everyone.
We acknowledge that everyone carries with them a unique set of lived experiences.
We strive to continuously improve access to our event for all participants, sponsors, and volunteers.
We appreciate the role of arthritis patients, families, and care teams.
We value our community and we invite feedback from everyone.
We believe that children should be free to run and play games, to draw and paint, and to dream and write stories.
We believe that a child’s ambition, hopes, and dreams should not be limited by Arthritis.
Arthritis doesn’t discriminate.
We believe that an ongoing commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion will help us ensure that we are supporting all children with arthritis.
We would like to honour the land that we are on which has been the site of human activity since time immemorial. The Art in Motion 10K/5K/2K is hosted on the traditional territories of many nations including the Petun, the Anishnaabeg, the Haudenosaunee, the Mississauagas of the Credit, and the Wendat and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. This land is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
These nations and this land were subject to the One Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the land and its resources. Other Indigenous Nations, Europeans, and newcomers, were invited into this covenant in the spirit of respect, peace, and friendship. We are mindful of broken covenants and strive to make this right, with the land and with each other.
We are all Treaty people. Many of us have come here as settlers, immigrants, or newcomers in this generation or generations past. We would also like to acknowledge those of us who came here involuntarily, particularly as a result of the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade. And so, we honour and pay tribute to the ancestors of African Origin and Descent.
