So why did I choose to run @RBCRun4theKids 15k?

Continuing on my running journey I have chosen to run the RBC Run for the Kids 15km distance.  I chose this race and distance for a few resons.  First I felt 15km was the perfect distance for me having just started running at the beginning of this year.  Second the money rasied from this race benfits the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook Hopsital.  As a Paramedic I too often see the impact of mental health issues on youth.  I hear many stories from them and their families of the difficulties of tying to find their way through the health care system.  They frequently become frustrated and lose thier drive to get better due to a lack of education in a very confusing system.  They often simply just dont know where to start!  Cue the Family Navigation project at Sunnybrook Health Sciences center.

This program fills a very large gap in the mental health care system!   However it cannot function without donations from wonderful people like you!  Last year the RBC Run for the Kids  raised $1.2 million to help young people get back on track to a brighter future.

So how can you help?

You can sponsor a runner or family/group.

Even better I be really really happy if you would sponsor me!

Come out to the event and cheer me and the other runners on!  They have a great kids zone planned

RUN with me 😀 in the 15km run, or the 5km run/walk/stroll or the 25km run.  If you’re new to running I will always offer advice from my experience as well as lots and lots of encouragement!  If you would like some training plans and tips check this out as well

Thanks for reading and I hope to meet you on September 20th Mel Lastman Square!

I did it for the kids, for the younger siblings and for the fans. But they still gifted me the jersey anyways! My heart goes out to this team! I haven’t felt more connected to a team than this year!! Thank you for giving me the chance to make these memories and for the opportunity to create these memories for your amazing kids! I heard from someone during the season that the days I wasn’t able to make it to a game to suit up the kids would say “awww man there’s no Forecheck today??? Now we’re gonna lose!!!” That stuck with me and I felt awful every time I couldn’t be there. Made putting in the suit worth it! Based on their record this year the def didn’t need me there to win game that’s for sure!! Already dreaming of next season! 💙💙💙 #hockeydad #hockeymascot #hockey #IDidItForTheKids #minoratomhockey #2009Falcons
