On May 30th I will be taking part in the Vitality London 10,000 to raise funds for Brooke USA.  This 10km run was founded in 2008, has grown each year and is now known as one of the best, and most popular, road races around with over 12,000 people taking part. I will be running to help raise funds for Brooke USA/ The Brooke. The run takes place in London starting and finishing in the gorgeous St James’s Park, the course will go past St Paul’s Cathedral, Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, to name but a few!

Rally For Kids With Cancer Scavenger Cup 2013

The 6th Annual Rally For Kids With Cancer took place on September 20th, 2013, and fortunately I was able to be a part of it again.  This exciting race helped us raise money for the SickKids Foundation, which supports research to improve the lives of children and their families around the world. This year, the scavenger hunt was held in Toronto, where I was selected to be a part of a great team. The race was fun and challenging, and knowing that we were in this for a great cause made it all the more rewarding. During the event, each team was given a sports car to race around Toronto, and the AWIN team was styling in a beautiful Audi A5! The scavenger hunt had us traveling all over Toronto — we even had the chance to search for luggage in one of Air Canada’s planes.  I love a good competition, so out of all of the pit stops, this one was the most exciting.     The outcome of the event was great, and with hard work, our team took second place! It is great to know I was somehow able to make a positive impact on children’s lives around the world. I cannot wait to be a part of more events like...

Rally for Kids with Cancer Toronto

I am pumped about the 6th Annual Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup benefitting the SickKids Foundation in Toronto! I had such a blast participating in the Cup in Miami a couple years ago that I had to do it again. This coming September, I am honored to be a navigator. Paired with the driver of an exotic car (crossing my fingers it’s a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster), we will compete in an “Amazing Race” style scavenger hunt around Toronto. We will start out with a clue that will lead us to a “pit-stop”, like the CN Tower or another Toronto landmarks, where we will have to complete a task to earn the next clue. The tasks are so creative and entertaining, not to mention, they’re all a secret! In Miami, contestants got to swim with dolphins in the Miami Seaquarium and play catch with Miami Dolphins football players. I can’t wait to see what I’ll have to do! The part of the race I am most looking forward to is visiting the Hospital for Sick Children and playing with the kids there. I think it might be time for another “Nic the Tiger” appearance! The Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Hunt benefits the SickKids Foundation. The Hospital for Sick Children is one of the top four children’s hospitals in the world with world-class patient care, research, education, and advocacy. SickKids Foundation is a charity with a vision to strategically invest in research and training programs that have the potential to improve the health of children across Canada and the world. I am so thrilled to be able to...
