About Southlake Foundation

At Southlake Foundation, we fundraise with one goal in mind: supporting our leading edge hospital and the communities it serves to make sure they have the tools and equipment they need to do their best work. As our community grows and changes, our hospital and our Foundation fundraising goals grow too — always looking forward to ensure that we are serving our current and future patients best.

Event History

The Nature's Emporium Run for Southlake is the evolution of the Bob Hartwell Challenge that began in 2002 to pay tribute to local businessman, civic leader and avid runner, Bob Hartwell. Through his incredible contribution to the community, Bob touched many lives in his 54 years.

The Nature's Emporium Run for Southlake honours his legacy by raising much-needed funds for Southlake Regional Health Centre, so that we can all continue to have access to the leading edge care that we deserve, close to home.

This event has since evolved into one of Southlake’s largest annual event and become a fixture in our community, with the first ever sold out event in 2018. Just as Southlake touches the lives of people beyond York Region, participants come from all over to join in. From South Simcoe, Durham and Dufferin Counties, Toronto and even as far north as Muskoka, participants from 3 to 80 years old come to support leading edge health care for their family, friends and neighbours.
