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.
