Oakrun Farm Bakery Going the Distance for Tim Horton Children's Foundation

ST. GEORGE, ON, May 30, 2013 /CNW/ - On Sunday, May 26, a team of 13 employees from Oakrun Farm Bakery laced up their running shoes to participate in the 13th Annual Tim Hortons Run/Walk for the Camps benefitting the Tim Horton Children's Foundation. This marks the third year the company has registered a team for the fundraiser and is one of many ways that Oakrun Farm Bakery will contribute to the Foundation in 2013 as part of their significant pledge.

Oakrun Farm Bakery has made generous donations to the Foundation's golf tournaments, bursary program and annual food program over the past 11 years. The company's commitment for this year will be fulfilled through event sponsorships and food credits towards each of the Foundation's six camps.

As one of the organization's major corporate donors, Oakrun Farm Bakery has shown outstanding dedication to building brighter futures for youth in all our communities. Ralph Mercadante, Director of Sales - National Accounts at Oakrun Farm Bakery comments,
"We are honoured to partner with the Foundation and know that our contributions are truly making a difference for kids in all our communities."

With the help of Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners, Foundation friends and business partners, like Oakrun Farm Bakery, the Foundation will provide memorable and enriching camp experiences for more than 16,000 economically disadvantaged children this year.

A Foundation camp experience is an opportunity for a child to gain valuable life skills in a nurturing environment. Participating in challenging activities during their time at camp inspires these children and youth to set personal goals and reach new heights. The campers receive encouragement from dedicated staff and in turn develop confidence in their abilities and learn to take pride in their accomplishments. Many campers return home as more caring, responsible and motivated individuals.
