As you may remember I ran one of my marathons in Newfoundland along the Baccalieu Trail in the summer. Since my chosen charities didn’t really cover Newfoundland in any way I agreed to do the run on behalf of the Lion Max Simms Memorial Camp Foundation, a project run by the Lions Club there that runs a camp for children with special needs and disabilities. My run raised over $800 for the foundation while I was there and I only just found out today that I was nominated by the Lions club last year for their Fellowship Award which was granted to me this week.
I’m really touched to receive this and only wish I could have been there to receive it in person but I am looking forward to going back there in the future. I might even be coerced into running the Baccalieu Trail again… but maybe I’ll try and find a flatter section of it next time around because without doubt that was one of the hardest routes I’ve ever done!
