Harvest Half Marathon

Paul Connelly wanted me to post this, good luck at Muskoka this weekend Paul and Tanya !! :
My wife & her parents took over organization of the Harvest Half Marathon about 3 years ago. Funds raised from the race are donated to the Alberta Cancer Society in a fund my wife set up in her sister's name - the Tracey Flagg Memorial Fund for Brain Cancer Research; Tracey died of brain cancer at age 38. The fund has raised over $180,000 during the last two years with proceeds coming from the race and private donations. Participation in the race is at an all time high.

This years’ race is on Sept 27th and runs through Fish Creek Park and is one of the most scenic races around. Volunteers are always needed on race day. A volunteer sign up sheet is available at http://www.harvesthalfmarathon.com/docs/volunteer.pdf and for those who would rather participate race entries are available at http://www.harvesthalfmarathon.com/raceinfo.html .
