Meet the Run2Believe 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.
My name is Sarah and I’m excited and proud to be a member of the Organizing Committee as Promotions Captain for the inaugural Run2Believe Winnipeg. I am a mom of three girls, 7, 13 and 16. Active in my community, serving on the Board of Directors for South Winnipeg Soccer Club and Ecole Bonnycastle School Parent Advisory Council. I enjoy getting involved and supporting those around me. Most recently I created a team for Light The Night Winnipeg after a very dear friend was diagnosed with Leukemia last May. Our team raised over $5,000.00 in a few short months. In the past year my Mother and two close friends were diagnosed with cancer and I am happy to be involved in something to support the St. Boniface Foundation, and make a difference for those at a time that they need it most.
I love the sense of community in Winnipeg and how people in Winnipeg love local. Go to a community gathering, a local event like Folk Fest, buying from local markets like La Belle Baguette or shopping local shows like Third + Bird. Winnipeg supports its own. This is why I know that the Run2Believe Winnipeg will be a success.
