Due to slush and flooding, organizers have decided to postpone today's event, in the interest of safety for all participants and spectators. They'll be looking for another date.
The event is a fundraiser for Special Olympics. However, the site at Anicinabe Park had flooded, creating ice and slush.
The trailer for the event couldn't get access to the area, and today's Arctic Cold didn't help matters, said Laurie Harkof, on behalf of the organizers.
Last year, the event raised $8,800 for local athletes. Across the province, 21 events raised more than $350,000.
