A small but mighty group of runners joined us on Saturday July 7th for the Big Chase Down Classic 6km race. It was our first year, and we definitely plan to do it again.
Before starting out, we’d received enough donations to ensure that Denise was “in the pink”, and prepared to run the race in her pink hat, shoelaces, sunglasses, socks, shirt, and tutu. With a well-documented disdain for the colour pink, Denise was a spectacle to behold!
7 runners joined us with the goal of not only chasing us down and surpassing us to the finish line, but also to help us raise $275.00 for Team in Training and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Jordan Nurmi and Catherine Perrin, each ran a very smart race and surpassed Denise about 2km before the finish.
Kelly Bowie passed Jessica and her son, 9 year old Zachary just before 3km, and Michael Donnelly passed Jessica just after 3km.
Hot on their heels were Paul Groves, Liz Taillefer, and Summer D’Aoust.
Thanks to those people who weren’t able to participate but gave us a donation, anyway. It’s not too late! If you’d like to donate, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Denise or Jessica. Or, our donation links can be found right here on this blog, just over to the right!
A special thanks to our volunteers, Jason and Dylan Clement, Sarah Moore, Zachary Valiquette and Michelle Seguin-Guenard, as well as to Running Room Store manager Gina Conroy. This wouldn’t have been possible without you.
Our next fundraiser will be a lemonade and Mr. Freeze sale at the 20 Minute Challenge on July 18th. We sure hope to see you there!Many Thanks,
Jessica and Denise.
