The IWK 5K – In Memory of Jessica is a family friendly fun run/walk on the Bedford waterfront to help support the IWK Health Centre Foundation. Jennifer Manuel started organizing this event in 2010 in memory of her daughter Jessica, who passed away June 2008 at the IWK Neonatal Unit. Running made her feel “normal” again, and it gave her the strength to get through the day. She wanted to run in a race that she was passionate about, and was looking for a run for the IWK, or for a children’s charity, but she couldn’t find one locally… so she started her own.
