It’s a little over a week to race day!
I thought I’d send out a quick note to say: “Thanks for the support!” and to update you on the training and fundraising. If you have already made a donation, then “Thank You!” If not, there is still time, I encourage you to seriously consider making a contribution.
Water for People has a vision: “We believe everyone should expect to have safe water every day. And we want to help them in reaching that goal, for every family, every clinic and every school in the regions and districts where we work.”
The event is a 48 hour trail race to be held just outside of Mansfield, Ontario on August 9th, 10th, and 11th. The race is not a charity event, but I will be dedicating my effort to raising funds and awareness for Water for People. I plan to run approximately 240km during the event, running straight through both nights. This year’s team consists of me, my son Carter, and Christine as a pace runner.
Training consisted of a weekly running schedule which started in February, and I'm pretty much done. I'm in the final stretch before the race, just tapering down my weekly mileage in preparation for race day.
My target for this fundraiser is $1,000.00. A few hundred dollars has already been donated, THANKS!
Please take a serious look at this company with heart:
