Andrea's Race

On Sunday I participated in the Tour de Airdrie, it is a run where all the proceeds of the race go to raise awareness for domestic violence in our Community and surrounding areas.  After our friend was tragically taken from us there was the need to do something in order to honor her memory.  A friend approached the organizing committee of this race to see if we could have the name changed and if we could work with them because the tragedy that we encountered so did our community and our lovely friend affected many peoples lives.   We weren't able to change the name of the race but the committee agreed that we could designate a special starting time for all those who wished to run in Andrea's memory.  We thought that it would be great to have some t-shirts made to let everyone know who and what we were running for in the Tour de Airdrie.  At first we thought we would just order t-shirts for our families but interest was so high that we ending up purchasing 144 t-shirts and selling them all.  It was so wonderful to see the sea of purple yesterday and all of the wonderful people that were running for our wonderful friend.  Here is our group after the race!!

Such a wonderful group of ladies!!!

Take care,
