Starting March 29, 2015 I plan to run 20 marathons in 15 months...
It is my desire to use this love for running to promote and help support this very worthwhile cause.
I would love to raise money and awareness for the ongoing programs in feeding the hungry and caring for the everyday lives of the less fortunate in Winnipeg. In restoring and ensuring there is a place people can go, find rest, love and community.
As I take this challenge to serve my community for which I am most thankful, would you join with me in changing our community one person at a time in bringing hope, self- worth, healing and a future to those around us? Little becomes much when we corporately work together for change.
In 2010 I began a journey into the world of running...
It all started as a desire to improve my physical fitness and it progressed into running 5K, 10K, half and full marathons in just five short years. I have developed a real passion for running and it has become a way of life for not just me but my whole family.
What started out with one marathon in 2012 and two in 2013 became seven in 2014. While I was running these marathons and my passion grew, I realized through running I could do something positive that could be used for a greater good. It was with this desire to run a large number of marathons that I could use it as a vehicle to support the needs of a local community.
I have become passionate about a local organization that brings hope and healing to Winnipeg’s inner city. This organization is Siloam Mission.
