This afternoon we braved the Saskatchewan elements to participate in the Hope Race for Recovery event — and by elements, I mean SNOW.
We walked with a group of people from the Saskatoon Freethinkers, and it was our second year we participated in the event. One element I really like about this walk/race is the ability to be able to participate in honor of, or in memory of someone you know who has fought cancer. This year, Jerry walked in honor of his father, a cancer survivor, and I walked in memory of my grandmother (my dad’s mom), who died of cancer before I was born.
Despite the unfriendly elements, it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Our friend Allen captured the finish line of our 2k walk on video, so here it is, for your enjoyment:
