St. Patrick's Day Virtual 5/10km Was a Sucess



WOWOWOWOW!! What an amazing turnout we had this weekend for the 5km - 10km virtual walk/run event!! It was such fun looking at all of your accomplishments and pictures. Congrats to all who took part. We actually had a few PB's today which is pretty amazing given the stress levels of the past week.

A special shout out and thumbs up to Byron Johnson, one of our oldest members (over 70), for staying indoors and self-isolating after returning home from the states. I know it's not easy and if you know Byron he could kick most of our butts running and cycling for that matter!

We aren't just doing this event for the Vanier Social Paediatric Hub, we are also doing this for our own mental health!! Keep moving, everyone, and try to limit your exposure to the doom and gloom news to twice a day.
