HCC RUN May 20, 2018
Here are Richard's plans for 2018!
This year my daughter Laura and I will be running the 2018 Liverpool, England half-marathon together on May 20, 2018.
So, it’s Liverpool. Barring the unforeseen, we will run the whole thing but have bought a Ticket to Ride just in case. We expect to finish in a couple of hours, as any longer makes you a Day Tripper and we don’t want that. As with any distance run, on such a Long and Winding Road, there is both pain and euphoria involved so we likely both Twist and Shout at the finish line but do hope to Get Back in one piece. We understand the course to be well-marked which keeps us from running Here, There and Everywhere in a Helter Skelter fashion. That would be more of a Magical Mystery Tour than a half-marathon. Not to worry, should we get lost, we can always Follow the Sun….
Sorry for all that. Anyway….
Richard and Laura are asking for pledges for this run to help support Huron Church Camp’s bursary fund…all proceeds will go directly towards sending kids to HCC who might not otherwise have the means to get there. And if you want to double your pledges to acknowledge there are two of us doing this, we are good with that!
I always try to convey to you what a good place the camp is for kids…and it is. Any of you who have been or whose kids have been know what a life-changing week or two at camp can provide…Laura is a camp alum and here she is, doing it in Liverpool! You can check out the camp website here at www.huronchurchcamp.ca
If you are inclined to sponsor a child for a week, a week’s camp registration fee is $500 + HST (still a relative bargain) …. and the average bursary runs a little over $375.00. Any donation is great…..
All donations will be receipted and cheques may be made out to Huron Church Camp. Please mark all cheques “Camp Run”. Please forward donations to
c/o Kent Group Ltd.,
Interac works as well using either the Kent email or my phone address (519-672-4043) if you are comfortable with it.
Together, our efforts over the past twelve years have raised about $260,000 and helped send close to 800 kids to camp which, frankly, far exceeds anything I might have imagined when I started to do this. And that’s absolutely thanks to you … I just do the easy bit, one step at a time, which takes longer and longer every year…
