Find 52: Friends of Albert Klein
I am pleased to train and coach Richard for Find 52 Thousand St. Lucia; I’m also excited to be his running partner. I’m not one to back down from a challenge and since the longest running distances I’ve done in the past are Half Marathons (21km) I know I also have my own work to do in preparation for the daily distances to be covered (about 45km each day).
Why I am participating
Although I’m certain this will be an amazing adventure and an invaluable personal experience, it’s just as important for me to make an impactful difference to the cause behind this great Guelph based charity, OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation. I often think about the vast number of books my own children – Carley 4 and Ethan 1½– have at their disposal at home, pre-school or our local library – and the joy I get from reading to them most nights. It’s an easy thing to take for granted. It brings me as much joy to know children in the Eastern Caribbean will also get access to children’s books through OneWorld Schoolhouse.
My secret strategy for the run
A very big umbrella.
If I can persuade 100 people to donate at least $52, I’ll raise $5200 for this great cause. It will go a long way to empower youth in St. Lucia through improved access to reading and literacy. So please help me in my quest to help others by supporting me. You’ll receive tax receipt for your donation. You can follow the event through the OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation social media links so don’t forget to connect with those. Thanks, everyone!
