Here is a note just sent to the 6AM Running group:
I am helping a Winnipeg teenage girl with her cross-Canada run. She will be in Fredericton this Saturday and Sunday. Here is her website: www.candacesutherland.com
Here are some recent articles written about Candace and her mission:
She and her uncle have a very low admin. account and they are just getting by. The run has been in danger of coming to an end a few times.
Candace is on her 3rd (and last) pair of Asics runners since leaving St. John’s Newfoundland. It will probably take between 10 and 15 pairs to cross Canada.
In any case, we are looking for a running club or group to get together and purchase 1 pair of runners for Candace to ensure that she gets another 500 miles or so further (after this pair is finished).
If you have any ideas or if you can pass this email to other running clubs, the Running Room, whatever, that would be appreciated.
I could arrange for Candace to meet with your club or any group while in Fredericton.
We have a practical opportunity to help another runner achieve this incredible feat. Please contact President Karl Ingersoll if you’d like to participate in helping with the shoe cost.
