About the Run
The Legacy Run to End Family Violence was founded by an Airdrie community collaboration in 2017 to raise much-needed funds and facilitate free services and supports for adults and children experiencing domestic violence. All proceeds raised will fund these free services and supports at North Rocky View Community Links.
Event organizers continue to honour the memory of Airdrie’s Andrea Conroy, who was taken from her children, family, and community in an act of domestic violence on February 21, 2012 at the age of 33.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was cancelled in 2020 and virtual in 2021.
This year, we were happy to be back in-person, and we raised $9,000 for Community Links!

Did you know?
On average, a woman will flee a violent situation 7 times before she leaves.
We all have a stereotypical idea of what a victim of domestic abuse looks like. We are all wrong. Victims of domestic abuse and domestic violence come from all walks of life, all income ranges, all levels of education, all ethnicities, and all genders. It is happening in your community as you read this. Domestic violence can happen to anyone. We all need to play a part in breaking the silence, because silence kills.
In February 2012, we lost Andrea Conroy. Andrea was a strong, educated, and vibrant young woman. She was extremely athletic and committed to a lifestyle of fitness and nutrition. Andrea was a role model, and she made a difference in Airdrie. Apart from being a personal trainer and helping others to reach their goals, she was a loving mother and a friend to so many. In an act of domestic violence that shocked our community, Andrea Conroy was tragically taken from us at the age of 33. She is forever in our hearts.
