Nicena – Meet the R2B Winnipeg Organizing Committee


Over the next several weeks, we’ll be featuring members of the Committee. Get to know who we are and why we are involved in this event.

I am Nicena Hyde, Sponsorship Lead for Run2Belive Winnipeg. I'm excited to represent St. Boniface Hospital and the Foundation for the inaugural event this September!!
I became involved in running about 8 years ago when a friend suggested we run a half marathon, which I am so proud of finishing despite having a torn ACL at the time.  After taking some time off to recover from surgery I got back at it and although I have had to overcome other injuries along the way, I will be doing my fourth half marathon in May.  I plan on trying for at least one more in 2017 as well as some shorter runs.
Since being diagnosed as diabetic in 2014, I like to keep myself active and try to lead a healthy lifestyle.  In between running, I am a regular at OrangeTheory Fitness and play slo-pitch in the summers.  I am glad that I can be involved in an event to raise funds in support of the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation for research and patient care.
I am an avid sports fan, particularly football and hockey (GO JETS GO!!), and a huge animal lover.  My fur babies are my world.
My husband and I moved to Winnipeg 18 years ago and it really has become home for this small town girl.  I love how giving this community is and the support provided to so many great causes!
