Fun-runnin Fundraising

We had kind of a crazy weekend! From babysitting to play dates a yard sale and yard work and then....

On Sunday we helped the 8 year old organize a fun run/walk to raise funds for Sick Kids hospital in Toronto.

Little is a Beaver Scout and as part of his program for the North Star Award (the highest Beaver's award) among other things he was told to do a "community project". No other real direction was given, and this crazy day was Little's brainstorm!

Our boulevard is about 2.3 km around, so a 2 lap fun run/walk was born.

He asked everyone to bring $5 and their own waterbottle - and he and I bought ribbons for all the participants.

"Active wear" was definitely the call for clothing for the day, but I still wanted to look "nice" because I knew I'd be in some pictures (not only for the blog) but with Little as he went about preparing and participating in this event.

And the most awesome thing? The event raised $500 for Sick Kids! We'll be donating it through the hubs' workplace and they will match it, that means $1000 going to help a hospital that is doing incredible work for the kids in our province!

So proud of this kiddo right here!

We're so overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends and families and are so happy for our kiddo for earning his North Star Award and for accomplishing something so amazing for such a worthy institution.
