This is the third Bridge to Bridge fundraising run this month.
Organizer, Josh Horan hopes to raise $10,000 for frontline workers at Windsor Regional Hospital.
Aubin’s goal was to raise money to keep healthcare workers safe.
"The money is going to go towards personal protective equipment. I guess they are going through it like crazy so it’s a huge cost. And I’ve seen on the website monitors, pumps and thing like that, ventilators."
