Run the Rock 2024

Donate To This Campaign
$116,235.25 raised out of $110,000 goal

Run the Rock is returning for its 29th year, in partnership with His Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) – St. John's and Make-A-Wish® Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador. This charitable effort is centered upon a relay style run across our beautiful province. Crew members from HMCS St. John's are stepping up to the challenge, from July 5th to July 17th, 2024 to help create life-changing wishes for local children with critical illnesses, and they are looking for your support! 

Right now, there are over 55 children in Newfoundland & Labrador waiting to receive the transformative power of their wish. We need your help to grant those wishes. The crew’s motivation thrives not only from granting wishes but also from the incredible support of communities across this province, year after year. Last year, the crew exceeded their fundraising goal of $100,000, beating the highest fundraising total in the events entirety and hope to raise even more this year! 
With your help, the crew can achieve their goal and help ensure every eligible child receives the joy of a wish. 

Feeling inspired and wanting to donate to this year’s Run the Rock? Consider making an online donation and/or fundraising! The crew might even stop by your organization for a cheque presentation when they run through your community!  

Please note all engagements MUST be scheduled through Make-A-Wish, to ensure a timely run schedule. To request an engagement, and/or for any questions, please reach out to Alyssa Shaw (
