A run to remember

... well the football boys and my boys will!

Starting their run!
These are some pictures that Dennis and Melissa (David's trip organizer) took of the boys from the Neepawa Tigers that came out to run with David McGuire for 'A run to remember' on Sept 27/11. 
Running with David on the TransCanada

Isaac, Dennis, David and Josh.
(me sitting here teary eyed still over this pic!)

David is a brain injury survivor who is running across Canada to raise awareness for Brain Injury.
Sam and I were in Wpg at the EMU Clinic when the team and David ran down the TransCanada by Carberry -- so we missed it... sigh The team ran for 4km with David and they all tell me that they really enjoyed meeting him. I was so proud of not only my hubby, Josh and Isaac for running but also for our football team to run! There were 8 other guys that volunteered! What an awesome bunch!

David has an amazing story to tell so please visit his site  or his FACEBOOK page and see if there is someway YOU can help with spreading awareness or make a donation. Also stop by his blog to read about his daily runs! (he runs about 40-45km a day!)
Here they all are after their run!
David gave them t-shirts that are A Run to Remember!

Thank you David so much for allowing our football team and family to run with you! You made such an impact on them! I only wish Sam and I could have been there to run too! You are doing such awesome work and we are all proud to have been able to be a part of what you are doing! 

Dennis took along a bag of oak leaves for David too(he put one on his hat!), so something that our family in Manitoba has been doing is now reaching beyond our boarders!

I had a blast with the guys Jodi. It was one of the highlights of the run.
