December 2014 – 5km Polar Dash – Jan 17th!

Start the new year off on the right foot!  Join the entire SchoolBOX community for a 5km run/2.5km walk around the Westboro area in Ottawa. SchoolBOX Ambassador Joe Rios, travelled to Nicaragua in 2010 and helped build the Ruben Dario School in Leon. He absolutely fell in love with Nicaragua and their people. Since his travels to Nicaragua, Joe has made huge changes in his life. He has incorporated fitness and philanthropy into his day to day life and aims to give back to those less fortunate.

Joe’s goal is to run marathons on all 7 continents and raise funds and awareness for charities along the way.  Joe’s 5km Polar Dash for SchoolBOX will prove to be the perfect training before he runs an ultra marathon in Antarctica in February.
