My Story…

I am going to run a Virtual Ottawa Marathon with the hope of raising money for the Canadian Cancer society. As is now tradition, my plan was to run Ottawa Marathon again this spring. It was also to run Boston again back in April. These plans were, of course, derailed so quickly along with everything else lately. I thought a bit about running a "virtual marathon" and it wasn't long before I realized I simply HAD to do it. These events help raise a lot of important funds for charities. Now that races are cancelled, charities have a hard time compensating. I've run for a cause before, but this time it just seems even more important! There are many well deserving charities in these times. For me, the fight against cancer is closest to my heart because it has affected near family and friends. For added fun, send me a CHALLENGE to perform during my virtual marathon! Cheers! /P
