Quotes

"We would just like to see people, lots of people, there to greet us and support us as we finish the 800-plus kilometre ride. The more the merrier" said Cpl. Collins
"It's a concept built on friendly competition and healthy living," said event volunteer Gus Klemos. "We have seen the overwhelming support for events like this overseas, and we are proud to be a part of it as it arrives for the first time in Canada."
"Our school visits are a pivotal part of the spirit of this fundraiser and the students and teachers help us to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars every year" he said in a news release
...Lori McDonald, fundraising coordinator for the Algoma District for the Canadian Cancer Society, said she is thrilled by the turnout. "The real focus of today was to be about the kids and doing what you can to raise money for a good cause and have fun while you’re doing it,” said McDonald. The adult course was a challenging 5-kilometre run upup and down hill, with 13 obstacles spread throughout the course. Those obstacles included climbing walls and crawling thorough mud pits, mostly created to get the runners as dirty as possible. About 50 children ages 3-13 were offered a modified 1-kilometre “Muddy Calf Charge” course with a few less obstacles. Kaiden Maltais, who celebrated his tenth birthday today, requested that his party be held at the event and that his friends give pledges instead of presents. “All he ever wants to do is help out other people,” said his mother, Solange Maltais. Like many people, Kaiden has friends and family who have been affected by cancer and Solange is proud that he would want to help make a difference. “He would be the type to empty out his piggy bank to give to a good cause,” said Solange. McDonald also highlighted the approximately 120 volunteers who came out to support the event. “It’s outstanding. We could not do this without the support of our volunteers,” she said. Funds go toward Canadian Cancer Society's research institute, specifically designated for childhood cancer research. Runners crossed the finish line to smiles and cheers but the biggest encouragement was reserved for Taten Hammerberg who, despite having lost a leg to cancer was able to complete the course. His mother, Marnie Holditch, was happy to see the community come out for the inaugural event. “I recognize a lot of faces because they come out for other events throughout the year,” Holditch said. The runs were not timed and the emphasis was on having fun, not who could cross the finish line first. “For our first year we decided for it to be non-competitive, if you want to time yourself you re welcome to,” said McDonald. Prizes were offered for best team spirit and muddiest competitors. “We are overwhelmed by the support from the community in terms of having this brand new event. We couldn’t be happier seeing the smiling faces as people cross the finish line having a great time,” said McDonald.
