Stage 15
Saint Sulpice, QC to Montreal, QC.

The Run arrived in Montreal entering the city over the River Des Prairies Pont Le Gardeur and then heading down Notre Dame Street. Along the way, the run passed the Montreal Olympic Stadium before continuing through the old downtown Montreal streets and then through the city along Rene Levesque Boulevard to the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

At the hospital the runners were greeted by Executive Director, Dr. Guyda and Tatiana Aparicio. A cheque for $5,000 was presented to the hospital. The hospital celebrated the occasion with pictures with runners as well as some snacks and drinks.

In the evening, the runners attended the divan at Gurdwara Nanak Darbar. Here they enjoyed the delicious food and well wishes for the long journey ahead. Members of the congregation donated money to the event and the Gurdwara also donated $500. We would like to thank the people of Montreal for their warm welcome and hospitality.
