Stage 24
South Bay, ON to Naiscoutaing, ON.

Many know Rick Hansen as the guy who started Wheels in Motion, but to us he is more then a hero, he is our inspiration. He circled the world in his wheelchair, showing us that nothing is impossible. As a close friend of Terry Fox, Mr. Hansen was truly inspired to make a difference. As Centre team 1 reaches its end Rick Hansen and Terry Fox remind us everyday that our small efforts go a long way towards helping Children in both our Canada and across the world.

As day twenty-four approached some of the centre team one member’s were reaching the end of their journey. Luckily today we had the perfect weather for running as there was a nice breeze and glimmer of sunshine. With the great weather on their side the runners had high spirits, which allowed them to run greater distances. Many runners out did themselves by running 5-8 miles! Impressed we were!

The night ended off in Sudbury at the motel Super 8. For dinner were taken to a fine Indian cuisine restaurant were we enjoyed a delicious Indian buffet. It was a bitter/sweet dinner since we knew it would be are last for this team. At the end of the dinner we went around and expressed are feelings towards the run and its members, which made many emotional. The many different perspectives from the centre team one members showed how well everyone got a long and how much the centre team one members would be missed. Memories were reminisced upon and life long friendships were made.

As we slowly approach the mid-point of this run we see how much work has gone into preparing and running this event. Although we are out here running across Canada we really are doing the easy part as we know the base team is hard at work, from collecting donations, fundraising, to doing interviews and much more. In addition we are truly grateful for all the support and generosity received from folks along the way.
