As a family we find great pleasure in participating in races... (the term "race" being used loosely). Runs, Walks, Triathlons, Bike Rides... it doesn't matter, if there is fun & fitness to be had, we are in!
Such events are always made so much more special when you are raising money and "racing" for a charity. There is nothing more inspiring than running along side survivors of cancer, or entering the water for a swim with a bunch of gals who have been touched in some way by breast cancer.
Today we had the pure pleasure to participate in the Four Seasons Parkway Run & Walk. In this event The Four Seasons, Philadelphia partners with the The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to benefit Cancer research and survivorship. CHOP is a leading hospital in the USA, one that continues to make ground making discoveries in the fight to cure pediatric cancer and other terrible illnesses.
This morning Jarna, Ryley and Isla participated in the 2km walk/run while Phil served a delicious Four Seasons hot breakfast to the 12,000+ participants at the finish line (Thank You Daddy!).
To say such events are inspiring is an understatement... If you have the opportunity, get out there and participate! The lessons learned can be life changing and monumental!
An amazing morning, spent with amazing people!
This Youtube video, that was released this week, was filmed at CHOP and today we got to witness just how brave these children are.
Today we count our blessings! xxxx
