Back in July I mentioned an upcoming event in which I have been involved as Volunteer Coordinator. It’s been a great experience so far being engaged behind the scenes. Run4Rett is this Saturday and I can’t wait to see everything come together. We’ve had a tremendous turnout with more than 225 registered participants and another 200+ expected to sign up on race day.
We received some exciting news this week that Jean-Marc Genereux of So You Think You Can Dance Canada (who has also choreographed for So You Think You Can Dance [US]) will be joining us at the event to cut the 1K ribbon and kick off the festivities. Jean-Marc’s daughter has Rett Syndrome and he was also able to make an appearance at last year’s event. This year he will be bringing his family and playing a bigger role.
If anyone happens to be in the area (Richmond Green Park, Richmond Hill) this weekend, drop by for some family fun and to participate in our 1K fun run/walk or timed 5K event and help raise funds and awareness for this important cause. The race kits were stuffed last week with an incredible selection of donations procured by my sister and I’m telling you, this will be one of the most loaded race kits you have ever seen!
