Last year, I ran the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon and it was truly an amazing experience. My only goal was to finish, and I surprised myself by doing so in under 2 hours.
This year I will be running the half marathon again on October 20th, 2014, but with a different goal – to raise $500 for the SickKids Foundation.
Leading up to the run, I will be hosting various events to help in this fundraising goal like a Trivial Pursuit night, a knit night, yoga in the park and more. I want to offer a social atmosphere for people to be able to engage in philanthropy and learn more about the SickKids Foundation. But first, run club!
As many of you know, I’m a member of a few different run clubs. As I train for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon, I will be doing my long runs on Sundays from now until the race. Each week, I will post a training schedule in a google calendar. As a fundraiser towards my goal of $500, you can participate in these long runs for just $5. Each week for all who participate, there will be a giveaway and for each run, I’ll aim to have a guest come along and talk about training. It should be A LOT of fun. I am so looking forward to this journey and doing something meaningful with my running.
Stay tuned for more updates! Happy training.
