It’s Official

So I entered The Santa Shuffle 5K. After some encouraging words and a lot of training after work with Mary, Lisa and Leslie, I finally decided to bite the bullet and register after much hemming and hawing (my dearly departed Auntie’s words for procrastinating.) This is my first 5K. I can’t count the CIBC Weekend to End Breast Cancer some six years ago, because I walked (well, it was more a leisurely constitutional) around Queen’s park. This time though, I shall be lacing up and running, or at least shuffling.

The Santa Shuffle supports the Salvation Army and registration fees will go to a homeless shelter in downtown Toronto. The Salvation Army does such great work to support different needs in the community, so I’m excited to be apart of the shuffle. I can’t wait to get my number and don my Santa hat all for a great cause.

  1. You’re gonna have an awesome time. When so many people come together for a great cause it can be so empowering. My grandfather died on the steps of the Salvation Army, where he had received a lot of care and support. Can’t wait to hear about your race!
