I'm SO sorry for not posting for so long. I'll be back to regular blogging soon. I promise. Right now I'm training for the Sun Run (which is this Sunday, aaaaahhhh!!) and I'm involved in a fundraising/charity even called Run For Water (www.runforwater.ca). We've been having more meetings lately as June 1 is fast approaching. What is it? Well, thanks for asking.
The 1st annual Run For Water will be held in Abbotsford on June 1, 2008 featuring chip-timed half marathon and 10k distances and a 5k Fun Run. It will start and finish on the scenic grounds of Mill Lake Park and will also feature a post-race concert by Abbotsford Canadian Idol finalist, Greg Neufeld. As the BC Lions open training camp in Abbotsford that same day, we will also have Wally Buono and several BC Lions players in attendance. We've also sent Trevor Linden an invitation but have yet to hear back from him.
Run For Water Society is a local group of volunteers, of which I am a part, dedicated to: 1) promoting a sense of community spirit in Abbotsford, 2) encouraging active, healthy living and 3) raising money to provide clean water in Amedo, Ethiopia. We would love for you to register! Get involved in the fundraising program and help provide clean water to people in Amedo, Ethiopia with the top adult fundraiser receiving 2 round trip airfares to anywhere in continental North America!!! The top youth fundraiser will be able to choose from among several options including 2 club seats to the Canucks opening game next year, 4 tickets to a BC Lions game or gift certificates to some great stores. Registration is underway now!
All distances will accommodate both walkers and runners with advance start times available to ensure that the walkers have sufficient time to complete the course.
If you know someone who is not a runner/walker, Run For Water can use their help. We will need many volunteers to help make this happen. You can check the website for volunteer opportunities. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Please feel free to forward this information to friends and family and help make this event a smashing success!
