The 5th annual TELUS Mission Possible: Half Marathon/Relay/ 5K is coming up in just a couple of weeks. This year it will be held Sunday November 15th and once again the course will take runners and walkers through the beautiful Marshes Golf Course in Kanata.
Last year, the 300 or so people who participated raised close to $12,000 for The Ottawa Mission! A portion of the proceeds from this event help support a special program that helps men who are homeless learn to run and gain access to activities that promote physical fitness.
Bruce has been out to run with volunteers in the Mission Run/Walk club a few times on Saturday mornings.
“Similar to mediation, I find that running is therapeutic and enables me to clear my thoughts and focus on my breathing’” he says. “The running program provides the support and encouragement I require to follow through with my recovery goals.” Bruce hopes to be among the runners on November 15th to take part in the big event.
If you would like help make our mission possible, and help Bruce and others in need of The Mission’s help, register today at https://www.events.runningroom.com/applications/?raceId=12481&eventId=37258&vrindex=3
Online registration closes at midnight on Wednesday November 11th, so don’t delay!
We extend our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors – TELUS, our presenting sponsor, as well as Mizuno, The Marshes, and the Running Room for their wonderful support.
