As many of you know, our dear friend Lee Anne Cohen reached her final finish line on September 24th. Since it's not possible for us to gather to celebrate her life, we invite you to join us in running, biking, hiking or walking miles in memory of Lee Anne. Although she thought nothing of sauntering out for a 10, 20 or even 40+k run most days, we'll let you choose your distance (she's probably chuckling right now!)

Lee Anne was someone who lived life to the fullest and her generosity, intelligence, joie de vivre and humour left an impact on all those who knew her. Many of us know her as the Co-Race Director of the Creemore Vertical Challenge alongside her husband Pierre Marcoux. She was also the 100 mile record holder for her age group & an accomplished potter.

We also invite you to make a donation to an organization that meant a lot to her, the Canadian Mental Health Association. Links below are for online & mail-in donations.
