Sonya's reflection on 300km in 30 days

thumbnail_20200816_121640

A recap of August 2020 - what a year, what a month it's been! While we are all making changes in our lives, and adapting to doing things differently I am happy to say that it was a refreshing change in fundraising energy and efforts on all fronts for me! Don't get me wrong, I love my bike and the team I have gotten to know over the last couple of years, but this year made it a little more special.

It was all on me - the fundraising, the planning, the nutrition, the getting it done....and I am happy to say YES over 312km of walking, hiking, running happened getting me over 400,000 steps and raising almost $4,000.00 for the Canadian Cancer Society and my R2S Team!!!

I spent many hours alone or with Apple (thankfully the Border Collie that never stops!), who by the way solved a lot of problems for me while we were walking and hiking around this amazing place we call home. It gave me many hours of reflection, a huge sense of gratitude that I am able to do these simple things whenever I want.

It was also very humbling - the support I received from everyone - some I know so well, and some I've never met - was overwhelming. It can't be done without all of you...a simple thank you doesn't seem enough, but from the bottom of my heart I say - thank you thank you thank you!! Cancer is still here, research still needs to be done - that doesn't stop either. 

With that here we are, September already

Rember safety doesn't take a holiday - keep your heads high, and place one foot in front of the next and that way we all will keep moving forward :) 

Take care everyone - Cheers - Sonya

Well said Sonya! We have been fundraising for cancer research for many years now. This year was year 11 for me. (I took a year off fundraising to give my donors a break and I crewed one year). That is 11 years of donations from some of my donors. All I have to do is ask. Your idea to stretch out our fundraiser for a full month was a brilliant idea. While running every day I got to thinking about how lucky we are to have our health and to be able to give back to a great cause. Great job on your fundraising and walking goal! Hope we can get back on our bikes in 2021 but if we can't I am sure we will come up with another fun event. Cheers!!!
