I am extremely excited to be running on October 9th for the Monarch Ultra. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the route this year will not be crossing any international borders and will be run in its entirety in my province of Ontario. Following a predominant trail network, which includes the Great Trail and Waterfront Trail, this year the route will be 1800 kilometers, over a period of 21 days.
The Monarch Ultra is much more than a run. It is a dynamic campaign to raise awareness of the Monarch butterfly and all pollinators and their significance to biodiversity and food security. It is engaging with our communities to do their part to fight climate change and build a more sustainable world that is integral to the survival of the human species. This is a dynamic message, and one we hope people will respond to. So it becomes a catalyst for action.
This year we are raising funds for Camp Kawartha, a leader in outdoor & environmental education and stewardship. As an accredited, not-for-profit organization offering a broad range of innovative year-round outdoor and environmental programming, Camp Kawartha trains educators and provides workshops on sustainability. They work with the whole community to foster earth stewardship through every age. Any contribution towards this amazing organization would be deeply appreciated.
