Thank you for supporting the NATEFIT Calgary Exposed 5K – together we raised $31,500 for inn from the cold
What is the NATEFIT Calgary Exposed 5K Run?
Be one of fifty philanthropist athletes (maximum of 50 runners) that are coming together to train in the cold, and run the NATEFIT Calgary Exposed 5K shirtless to raise money for Inn from the Cold.
The NATEFIT Calgary Exposed 5K Run, organized by NATEFIT Integrated Fitness & Nutrition, will take place February 3, 2019 at 12:00pm, starting and ending at the Calgary Health Show at the BMO Centre.
Last winter, NATEFIT Integrated Fitness & Nutrition founder, Nathaniel Ernst, raised $4,400 for Inn from the Cold by running a 10K race shirtless in -15℃ cold temperature. Inspired by the Ice Man, Wim Hof, Nathaniel has integrated the benefits of cold exposure with running and supporting the mandate of Inn from the Cold.
Why support Inn from the Cold?
Imagine you or a loved one with nowhere to sleep on a cold Calgary winter night…
Or worse, this traumatic experience at the vulnerable age of five…
For over 20 years Inn from the Cold has provided, emergency shelter, affordable housing and program supports to homeless children and their families..
“And sadly, the number of families seeking shelter, housing and assistance increased by 20% this year.”
Be a runner or a sponsor, get involved!
