News from Julie

Julie Buchinger signed up for the Run to give life event to make the Ottawa half-marathon, which she is running on May 27, even more meaningful.

She’s been training hard for the past several weeks, but this week she’s taking time to rest. Only a few days from the big race, she wants to make sure she gets to the starting line well rested and in good shape. Even after sustaining a few minor injuries over the past few months, Julie feels ready for the challenge, and can’t wait to get her bib number.

Julie has received support from many friends and family members over the months; thanks to them she has successfully raised $1200 for the Foundation! Thank you Julie, and good luck.  We will be thinking of you on May 27.
