Running an Ultra-marathon for the Environment

Time to bust out of the marathon limits and bust into the world of ultra-marathons.

I'm in training for the Elk/Beaver 50K Ultra-marathon on Vancouver Island as a fundraiser for the David Suzuki Foundation.

You can donate to the cause here.

The David Suzuki Foundation is a science based organization that helps people live within the limits of nature.  The Foundation has been around for over 20 years and has had numerous victories but there is still so much more to do.

The future of the four wonderful foster children that are in my care scares me as we are losing the battle for the environment.  I don't want to have a conversation with them in 20 years time in a world much bleaker than this and have them ask me why I didn't do everything I possible could to mitigate the affects of climate change.

This run is one small step to make a better future for them.

I'll be updating this blog regularly with my progress.

Stay tuned!
