Run the Rock

Donate To This Campaign

On behalf of the Run the Rock crew, Make a Wish®- Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter is inviting you to support the 20 crew members from the Canadian Navy frigate HMCS ST. JOHN’S as they run over 900 KMS across the ‘Rock’ with a goal of granting life changing wishes for seriously ill children in our province. Since 1996, teams from HMCS ST. JOHN’S have raised over 1 Million dollars for children diagnosed with critical illnesses. With this being the events 25th anniversary, we are aiming to make this the most impactful event yet and would love your support this year for our 25th annual Run the Rock taking place from August 17th-29th, 2021.

The crew of the HMCS ST. JOHN’S are seeking public and corporate donations to help them on their mission to grant 10 wishes for children diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. You can help through a donation of funds, or by donating an item or product. This will help the team keep costs at a minimum and allow them to raise even more to help grant life changing wishes.

Please contact development coordinator Alyssa Shaw by emailing for times and event particulars. You can also become engaged by following #RunTheRockNL and Make A Wish Canada – Newfoundland & Labrador Chapter on Twitter, or Facebook.

Thank-you for your continued support & we hope to see you (from a distance) as we Run the Rock this summer in support of Make a Wish Canada – NL Chapter.
