Find 52: Coyotes


On possibly the last brilliant day of summer 2017, five hundred runners set out to run Mono Cliffs Provincial Park. Their goal was to complete one of three courses over beautiful but hilly terrain. Ours was to promote awareness of our book donations and reading festivals. Sonya spoke to several participants – who turned out to be teachers. People like Steve Whyte from Ursuline College in Chatham who’s the cross country coach and from Arnprior, Sherri Madore. Thanks to Running Free owners and race organizers, Norm Nadon and Jodi McNeil we are back for our third year.

Finding the way for Fundraising
Olympian Jake Holden and Richard Clewes survey the route for Find 52 in January 2016. The duo were joined by St. Lucian Olympic athletes and members of the Royal St. Lucia Police Force.

A road is a song, a poem, a movie, an adventure. It's hope and optimism, and inquisitiveness.

The Angry Isle
Fundraising is an Uphill Battle
In January 2015, I ran 52 miles in Grenada. Let me dismiss athletic motives; it so happens 52 miles gets you all the way around the island. I did it for money – $40,000 – all of which went to OneWorld Schoolhouse. CTV National news ran the story on May 25, 2015 and so began Find 52.

All men should strive to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.

International Literacy Day 2016
Soufrière Primary ran a relay on September 8, 2016 to celebrate reading. The event was filmed as part of the "run-up" to our first Find 52 Thousand campaign in 2017. Over 1,000 students from grade 3-12 ran 1 mile segments right around St. Lucia.

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

Find 52 started in Grenada
52 miles gets you right around this small, beautiful island. Companions on the second day included: Philip Clift from Petite Anse Hotel, an enthusiastic young boy and one very fit dog named "Dodgy".

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.
