Dear Running Community, Followers and the General Public,
THE LATEST UPDATE FOR THE START OF THE FalloRick Home to Home Run.
The unprecedented times continue. COVID-19 continues to impact individuals, communities, provinces and countries around the world. My thoughts are with all individuals personally affected, the medical professionals and the dedicated individuals working in the essential trades and businesses while we work hard to get through this.
For personal safety and the safety of everyone involved, it has been decided to delay the start date by at least 2 weeks. I will continue monitoring the situation and keep everyone informed when a new start date is planned.
It is still planned to complete the Home to Home run from "Mile 0" in Victoria BC, for Make-A-Wish Canada and Childhood Cancer Canada, but the starting date will depend on when it becomes safe, not only for myself, but for all those around me. .
It is difficult to see other events around the world cancelled or postponed. We should all stand behind organizers who are making tough decisions to protect the health of athletes and the public in general. It is also difficult to see retailers and service providers suffering as they manage through their own impacts.
I encourage all who can to get outside and put one foot in front of the other to get out, keeping in mind social and physical distancing for the sake of everyone. Excercise is a source of positive energy, and we want to put as much of that energy into the world as possible when people are ready for it.
Donations will still be accepted and appreciated
