Stage 29
Montreal River, ON to Wawa, ON.

The morning of July 29th started off as a rain day, with frigid cold weather in Wawa, Ontario. We were in the clouds most of the morning; these come off Lake Superior and make the weather cold so we had to heat our vehicles and burn wood logs in our chalet.

Little Lake George, ON to Montreal River, ON.

The first team began the day with a warm breakfast and was on the road by 6 am. The plan for the team today was to leave Sault Ste. Marie and head north towards Wawa (For those of you that are wondering, yes this is really the name of the town!). After the morning Ardas all the runners piled on to the bus except for the very first runner, Sarpreet.

July 26th was a start for some, just another day for others, but for many of us it was a start for Centre Team 2. The run started off with one team running first in Whitefish.

Stage 25
Naiscoutaing, ON, to Whitefish, ON.

Centre team one wraps up their one week journey today as we reach Sudbury, Ontario. It has been a life time experience, which we will always hold close to our hearts. Through all the ups and downs we will never trade in the experience we had on the “Children’s Run Across Canada”. The last day for the Centre Team 1 was definitely a very scenic one allowing us to reflect on how beautiful Ontario truly is. Read more…
