Run to quit

Prize Winners

To our 2017 Winter and Spring participants:

We would like to thank you for your patience while waiting to see who the winners are for the 2017 Grand Prize round. We started our selection process on August 9th, 2017 at 1pm EST by conducting a random draw as stated by the terms and conditions. The process to find qualified winners who have quit smoking and ran a 5K by the deadline is lengthy and we do need to do our due diligence to ensure our winners are qualified. We still do have some unclaimed prizes and are going through our list of calls to ensure we find our grand prize winners.

Once we have found all of our winners, we will be announcing them on our website, through an email and on social media.

We thank you again for your patience and congratulations on being smoke-free!

Congratulations to all Run to Quit graduates who have successfully quit smoking and have walked or run a 5 km event. You have made big strides to a healthier you and should be very proud of your accomplishments.

Run to Quit is proud to announce the winners of the Run to Quit Contest. On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, Running Room, Public Health Agency of Canada and our sponsor McNeil Consumer Health congratulations to:
