Run for Rocky took place on the riverside on Saturday after a five-year hiatusOUS News

“Run for Rocky” returned to Windsor’s waterfront after a five-year hiatus on Saturday morning.

This is one of several events included in this year’s Windsor-Essex Pride Fest after they were previously held in April.

Hundreds of people gathered in Dieppe Park near the Detroit River to take part despite the heat and humidity.

Run for Rocky is a charity run/walk inspired by Rocky Campana, who passed away in 2012 after attempting suicide.

Campana’s legacy has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars since his death.

Those interested in supporting Run for Rocky or celebrating Run for Rocky Legacy Day can do so online at runforrocky.com.

Windsor-Essex Pride Fest continues throughout the weekend.
