It was another successful year!
With the attendance over 110 people, we raised almost $3,000 for the Saint James Music Academy. A special shout out to Tony at Article for getting his company to raise $800 themselves.
Arlene, Dee Dee & Mel were on site to talk a little bit about Saint James Music Academy. SJMA feeds, inspires and provides emotional support for children and young people in “Canada’s poorest postal code.” It is a great privilege to be able to support this tremendous organization.
It was blue sky with some fast moving clouds for most of the day, a breeze to keep us cool while we ran or walked out the jetty.
Marie, starting things off with a yoga stretch including a Haka (traditional war cry, dance or challenge from the Maori people of New Zealand) She never fails to come up with something fun !
Peter from Globus was the fastest runner this year with a time of 34 minutes, but Duncan & Andrew were quick on his heels. The fastest women was Emma, coming all the way from Squamish for the event. Tony, a new comer took the win for the fastest walker with a time of 48 minutes.
Last year we introduced the “Team Spirit” award. The number of entries more than double in attendance. The “Outsetters” took first place with their matching palm palm headbands, but we couldn’t just have one winner. The “Wander Women” were also given a prize with their matching tiara’s and playful flying along the walk.
The wildest hat is always a very hard prize to pick, each year the hats get better. Kevin took the win with his snaky hat. But the Hershey’s Kiss, and the mad hatter were close seconds.
A special thanks to all the 2017 sponsors. (Listing above)
It was another year of great success, and we already planning 2018 !
