Request for participation: Mercedes-Benz 10K Event

Dear BIA members,

On Sunday, April 24, 2016 runners will be racing through downtown Oakville for the Mercedes-Benz 10K. This year we want to get involved in this great community event and welcome runners to beautiful downtown Oakville!

The BIA is asking if your restaurant or cafe is interested in offering a discount to customers? We want the 2500 runners and 1000+ spectators to choose downtown Oakville as their post run destination (around 11:00am).

The Mercedes-Benz 10K run raises money for The Lighthouse Program for Grieving Children which is a local charity supporting children, youth and their families in the Halton and Peel region. The Lighthouse is a forum for companionship with others who have experienced a ‘life altering death.’ This run is an annual fundraising initiative to support the great work that Lighthouse does.The race is a fun challenge for your staff to participate in while fostering relationship with and supporting the Oakville community. For more information please visit and read below.

If you are interested in offering a discount, please email Jennifer at and if you are want to form a team or have any questions regarding the run please email Deirdre Thomas, Volunteer Marketing & Events Manager for The Lighthouse Program for Grieving Children at

Thank you,
