It’s time for us to get into prime portaging shape! And while we’re at it, we might as well support a local charity!
The TwoCanoe crew has signed up for the YMCA Relay for Strong Kids. For those of you who are not familiar with the event, it is a 4 person/3km relay. Each member runs 3 km for a total 12km. Now that should help build some stamina for those extra long portages.
From their website: The YMCA Strong Kids Campaign raises funds so more kids can participate in life-enhancing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body. We believe that everyone should be able to participate in our programs regardless of their financial means. Through generous donations to our annual fundraising campaign, the YMCA is able to provide access to our programs and services, helping to build healthy kids, families and communities.
Their website also promises some after-run celebration and general admission tickets to the Honda Indy the following Saturday. How could it get any better?
Hey, if you’re going for a run that day anyway…why not sign-up, raise some money and support the community!
