Why the Great Neighbour Race?

(L-R) Lindsay Smith, David Dodge, Allan Bolstad, Rob Agostinis, Rhiannon Hoyle, David Gibbens and Nora Begoray of the 100th Anniversary Committee show the design plan for the Community League Plaza in Hawrelak Park.

Hosted by the EFCL and project partner, Lafarge Canada, the annual Great Neighbour Race event is not only a fantastic community event for everyone of all ages and all abilities, it's also a fundraiser. All net proceeds go to the EFCL 100th Anniversary Project and will be used to build the new Community League Plaza in Hawrelak Park.


The plaza is about honouring Edmonton's 157 community leagues and the dedication to community building by their many volunteers over the past 100 years, plus all the future volunteers to come. Learn more about the project.
