To Canada and Back! : Running to Raise Money and Awareness for Special Hockey


I’ve decided that I am going to run across the board to Canada and back to raise money for the American Special Hockey Association.

Don’t worry it’s totally legit; as the Detroit Marathon course takes runners over the Ambassador bridge, through the streets of Windsor and back thru the Detroit-Windsor tunnel.

So I have decided that I am going to run the half-marathon this coming October and try and raise money for the American Special Hockey Association (ASHA) in the process.

I’ve been a volunteer with ASHA for a few years now and love everything about this organization; why wouldn’t I do my part to try and raise them some more money.

Now that I have decided to run the international half marathon I am looking for those that may want to join my running team. There is a U.S. only half marathon, the full marathon, a 5K, and a 5 person relay. Just because I am doing the international half doesn’t mean you can’t go along with me – and probably beat me to the finish line.

You can go to the event page on Crowdrise at: to check in on the progress of reaching the goal of $5,000. I figure we have until the end of October 2013 we can make it with some help!
