Today was an incredible day. We woke up in Clarenville, NL, and made our way to St. John's. We met up with Dave & Tony (friends from Peterborough), and finally got our much needed showers. We were also welcomed with freshly baked buns and other tasty treats.
After a day of running around, in search of media contacts for the kick-off, we were hosted by some incredible people who reached out to us and provided an incredible dinner and even better company. Thank you to Bonnie, Gerard and family for their hospitality and it was absolutely wonderful to meet Katie and Jeremy as well. An absolutely incredible time, that The Run to Live team will not forget.
We have a big day tomorrow with finalizing details and heading out to the starting point.
I can't wait to get this started!!
Just so everyone is aware, our iPhone doesn't allow us to blog through the website. With that said, we will update as often as we can get an internet connection to fire up the laptops!!
We are currently in North Sydney, NS, waiting to board the ferry that will take us to Newfoundland. We have had a few long days of travel to get out here, but it will provide us with some extra time on Saturday to prepare for the kick-off on Sunday.
We have been getting lots of interesting footage and a few cool pictures that will all be updated as soon as we can get them up.
The Run to Live team is very excited to share the journey so far with you!!

A big thank you to the team at Future Shop for your incredible generosity!!!
