New this year - Avenue of Nations

This year’s Cameco Step Up for Mental Health will bring the celebration of community to the racecourse.

New this year is the Avenue of Nations, a three-block stretch on 4th Avenue in the heart of downtown Saskatoon. This area will feature performances by local cultural groups to inspire participants during their run or walk.

Several local groups are expected to perform including Japanese drum group Living Sky Taiko, Saskatoon Chinese Dance Club, hoop dancer Lawrence Roy, and Bridge City Bhangra.

Step Up always features a lively atmosphere, thanks in part to dance and music performances. Along with the Avenue of Nations, seven DJs will be playing tunes at various locations between the start and finish lines.
