Seven-year-old from Hawkesbury completes 10 km run

Seven-year-old Max Sockett completed a 10-kilometre run on Saturday, May 27, in Ottawa.

His father, Stephen Sockett, who organizes a running group in Hawkesbury, said he is grateful for members of the group who looked out for Max.

 “I owe everyone a dept of gratitude for making sure Max was safe, hydrated and having fun,” he said. Sockett said Max is proud of his achievement – he placed first in his age group. He also raised $600 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, a cause chosen after he recieved care at the hospital earlier in the year.

 The Hawkesbury Runners meet every Sunday at 9 a.m. at the  Le Chenail Cultural Centre for a “fun run.” More information is available on Facebook at the Hawkesbury Runners page.
