Ten years ago, my friend Marco and I had an idea to host an outdoor ball hockey tournament in the middle of a Winnipeg winter. (Sounds crazy, right?) Our goal was to get all our friends together and raise money / awareness for @CMVCanada. We named the tournament “Le Classique” and each year, we have been blown away by the generosity of Winnipeggers and the success of our event. 🏒
This year, we have decided to take a little pause from ball hockey and do something different… Instead, I’m going to run across #Manitoba. This May, I will run two half marathons per day over 12 days to raise awareness of Bill 214 (universal congenital cytomegalovirus [cCMV] screening in Manitoba) and funds for the Canadian CMV Foundation. Inspired by Canadian hero Terry Fox, I will run from the Saskatchewan – Manitoba border to the Manitoba – Ontario border in pursuit of ensuring that each baby born in Manitoba is tested for #cCMV.
I want you to run with me and support this important cause. Visit runwithrob.com for more information. (Make sure you sign the petition!)
Thanks for your incredible support,
