Red Cross Talks

This week, the Canadian Red Cross and the ICRC are hosting a workshop bringing together experts to identify recommendations to ensure the safety of health facilities in times of conflict. As such, we’ll be posting a blog post every day this week to help raise awareness about the need for healthcare workers to be protected in emergencies.

Jut tried out @canadianrunning pick for best urban shoe for 2017 from @underarmourca!  These are UA Charged Reactor  model.  I don’t think I have any complaints or issues with these shoes!  My feet were always the right temperature, when ever I stepped into a puddle I never go a soaker and I never felt any slipping on the changing ice, water, snow and dry concrete surfaces of the sidewalks. They tied up well around my ankle and my foot never slipped around inside. They also fit very well with my insoles which is a huge plus!  I highly recommend you try these out for yourself this winter! #CanadaWill #UARun .
