Community Charity Services
Landmark Home Solutions is proud to have been able to participate this past August 2016 in Bayfront Park’s second annual “Hell in the Harbour” Mud Run, a charity initiative in support of Special Olympics Ontario that raised over $60,000. As a strong supporter of community, diversity and disabled people and athletes, Landmark Home Solutions was thrilled to have the opportunity to be titled sponsors at the event and to hand out water bottles from our Landmark truck, which we had adorned with banners and parked on the grounds.
The Hell in the Harbour event is a six-kilometre obstacle course that tests mental and physical strength as the participants try and do their best to overcome a military style training course. Ontarians of all races and genders were pushed to their physical and mental limits as they competed for best times on the course. Landmark Home Solutions was on the scene snapping pictures, having fun with locals and letting loose for a great charity cause.
What made the event so special for Landmark Home Solutions was the way that it brought together families and community in support of a great initiative. As family people ourselves, some of us with disabled people in our own families and social circles, anytime that we can lend a hand to supporting strength and diversity in Ontario we take it, and the Hell in the Harbour Mud Run was no exception.
Not only was it a great chance to support local athletes and raise money for a good cause, but it was also an opportunity to support local business, try local food and listen to some great local music. Local Hamilton musicians, Freedom Train, provided the live entertainment, people relaxed and interacted in the beer gardens, sampled delicious food from local food trucks and a Caribbean cruise was even handed out as part of an automatic draw that participants who raised over $60 were entered into.
It is events like these that make Ontario and communities like Hamilton the special places that they are. Landmark Home Solutions has provided great products and great service over the years, and in return we have been treated well by the communities where we operate. Any chance to give back is something that we are passionate about and interested in. It was fantastic to see the strong turnout and the backing of the event by local businesses. Without the support of great community members and great local businessmen and women, causes like these wouldn’t receive the support and attention they deserve, and amazing, inspirational male and female athletes throughout Ontario might not be able to compete.
From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank Special Olympics Ontario, The Law Enforcement Torch Run, and the municipality, residents and businesses of Hamilton and beyond that made this such a special day and successful event. We look forward to next year’s Hell in the Harbour event and hopefully, as the years progress, we can continue to raise even more money, and make an even bigger impact on behalf of Ontario’s disabled athletes.
