We will be cheering these students on, as each student will be wearing a name of a fallen soldier of 1917. We will also be cheering YOU on as you also will be running ‘in the footsteps of our heroes’.

11. PSA LogoThe Psychology Students’ Association is excited to be one of the official cheering stations at the 2016 Canada Army Run!
