I wanted to take a chance to offer some encouragement and support to someone who has been on the sidelines of many of my races cheering me on! My sister in law
Elaine (Em's youngest sister) is going to be participating in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Charity Challenge. She will be doing the 5 km walk/run taking place on October 16th, 2011. Elaine is a member of the The ABLE Network, a community based, non profit, organization that provides young adults with intellectual disabilities meaningful employment and recreational opportunities. All funds that she raises in the STWM Charity Challenge will directly to support this organization. So I am going to go find my wallet ( misplaced it again for the millionth time) and help Elaine reach her goal, I encourage others to do the same!
