A Winnipeg man spent Boxing Day doing something very different.
He hit the pavement in support of Siloam Mission.
For the fifth straight year, Junel Malapad, who is a local ultramarathon runner, spent the day running.
He calls the annual run ‘Change Boxing Day to Running Day’.
His goal this year was to run 100 kilometres.
He started at 4 a.m. Thursday and spent the day running a three-kilometre loop at The Forks.
“Siloam Mission helps out a lot of homeless people, and people should not freeze to death in our city, they could be picked up and helped out. Siloam Mission does a lot of great things that way, so that’s the reason why I’m running today,” said Malapad.
Throughout the day, Malapad was joined by fellow runners for parts of the route.
Donations were collected at The Forks and will be dropped off at Siloam Mission.
