St. John’s Social Distancing Walkathon

This note is from Gail…Our social distancing walkathon is over. During the period of May 15 – June 15, a team of dedicated people walked as they usually do to keep active and logged the distance they walked each week. We learned a little bit of history about each location we “reached” each week. Our goal was to “reach” St. John’s NL….& we succeeded.

According to Mapquest, St. John’s NL is 2864 km from Whitby (assuming we didn’t need to walk the 177 km while we were virtually on the ferry) Our team walked 2895 km.

I am very pleased at the level of enthusiasm from all the participants and sponsors. Through sponsorship of our walkers we have raised $3748.00 for St. John’s general operating expenses.
Thanks to everyone who walked &/or donated. What a team!!

Hope everyone enjoys their summer. Take care & stay well.
