Run Day 3

North Sydney, to Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia


It was a restful night for most as we rocked away to a comfortable sleep in the ferry on our individual dormitory beds.  Everyone got ready and headed for breakfast in the Ferry cafeteria. When there’s 30 people walking around in bright yellow and blue outfits, we’re bound to draw some attention. At breakfast, we were pleasantly surprised to receive homemade organic banana bread from a woman on the Ferry who actually saw us running the day before on the way to Ferry, and congratulated us on our efforts. We also received a $20 donation from another passenger on the Ferry – truly some encouraging moments that were also very delightful experiences!

It was a nice slow day for us, with some challenging areas of the route, but at the same time, some really scenic scenes to enjoy as well.

Years of planning and preparation, along with the hard work that’s continuing as we speak, has finally given it’s first fruit, as the East Team successfully completed the first day of the Children’s Run Across Canada! Read more…
