Thoughts on the Run and my personal involvement: Over the years, being a part of the GGSCF has taught me that any event you dedicate yourself to is possible if you have the support of your team behind you! We’ve done a lot of runs over the years and an across-Canada run has always been something that the GGSCF hoped to achieve one day. I am so incredibly proud of all the hard work and dedication that the members of the foundation have put in towards making this event possible.

Thoughts on the Run and my personal involvement: I’m very positive about “Across Canada Run”. I’m part of the east team and do weekly practice to run. My role is to make contact with Gurdwaras. I attend monthly meetings and events of GGSCF. My request to parents is that they should bring their children to Gurdwara, encourage them to attend monthly meetings and events of GGSCF.
