Canadian Sikhs run cross-country

In order to provide a little bit of cheer as we head into the weekend, I thought I’d share this news bit.

A team of 32 Sikhs partnered to run across Canada, as well as fundraised $10,000, on behalf of children’s hospitals in Canada and in Africa. The runners were commemorating the 10th anniversary of a previous fundraising effort, and they hoped to expand the scope and reach of their efforts.

The runners belong to the Guru Gobind Singh Childrens Foundation, which did a fundraising run from Toronto to Ottawa 10 years ago. This years run is in honour of that effort, but on a much larger scale.

In addition to running legs of the race, the team had a van of supporters who provided nourishment and supplies. The runners were housed by Sikh families all across the country as they ran to Ontario, where the remainder of the relay was run by another team, in partnership.
