Longest Sunday of the Year Walk / Run - 3rd annual

Thanks to everyone for participating in the
Longest Sunday of the Year Run/Walk.
It was a great success, raising more money each year !
A big thanks to James at Air Canada for their sizable donation.
Vancouver is still waiting for our summer to begin, but all the sun dancing worked. Sunday was a fabulous day!! The temperature broke 20’C and the sun block was needed.

Before heading out on our run or walk we did a quick warm up to loosen the muscles.

The Longest Day’s youngest contestant
took home the fastest walker.
5 year old Sidney, took home the gold medal for 5km


Raul, a first timer, snuck past the finish line a mere milliseconds ahead of the rest of them.

Contestants for Sexy Shorts
Anne-Marie took home the prize for sexiest shorts once again this year.  It was her  complete outfit with sparkling runners, that put her ahead of the rest.


See you all next year !

Relay for Life, 10th Anniversary

The Travel Group's, Annie, will be walking in the
10th Anniversary of the
Relay For Life on the North Shore!

A cancer survivor herself, and cancer free since 1993.
Annie has participated in this event for 9 years, as part
of the North Lonsdale United Church Team.
Helping with the survivor's breakfast, and the survivor lap.

All day there are bands playing as teams walk the track.
There are different themed laps. 3 legged lap, a walk backwards, hop on one foot, & wearing a funny hat. Just to name a few.

The last lap is very moving. The luminaries are lit which line the track. These are paper bags filled with sand, and a tea light. On the bag is written "in memory", "in support" or "in honour"of a person affected by cancer. Then at dusk, everyone walks around the track in silence holding lit candles.

Annie relays in memory of friends that have lost thier battle with cancer, too many and way too young.
Support Annie by helping her reach her fundraising goal.

Relay For Life, Mahon Park, North Vancouver June 10, 2011.  10:00am - 10:00pm
