 Hi supporters!  Join me on this awesome run/walk between Saturday, September 12 and Sunday, September 20 in beautiful Port Dover ON!  If you aren't able to walk or run, donate to Juravinski Cancer Care and join us in spirit!  I first participated in the Bright Run in September 2018, along with the loyal team of supporters you see below.  Brigitte, Allegra, Geneva and Liana travelled to the Dundas ValleyConservation area, and we had such a great time, 5 amongst the 1,000 walkers and runners.

in 2019, I decided it would be easier, if not as exciting, to hold an event in Port Dover.  We doubled our team numbers to 10 or even 12, walked or ran a 5km course along the spectacular Lynn Valley Trail.  Everyone covered the same distance, and we ended up with lunch on the deck at the Urban Parisian.  It was a great day!  However, because we hadn't registered through the Bright Run, we didn't have team shirts, and donations went to Hamilton Health Sciences, a worthwhile cause, but not directly to Juravinski Cancer Care for breast cancer treatment and MacMaster University for research into breast cancer.

This surprising year of 2020 has us still in Port Dover, but officially registered as participants in the Bright Run.  I have 2 course options:  1 or 5 km, and I'm thinking ahead so we could cover the course individually or as a group which shares the same household, if we're still physically distancing.  One message I heard about 2019 was "NO HILLS" so the course is flat and I have one on the Lynn Valley Trail and an alternative course in town.

I hope we can double our team numbers to 20 or 25 participants, and our fundraising goal should probably be $2,500 for the team.  Once again, I hope the Urban Parisian will be involved but I haven't got to that stage of planning yet!
