The Eve before Canuck Place Cultus Lake Adventure Challenge and Eve of the Eve before Canuck Place Vancouver Adventure Challenge

I believe (although my beliefs are fleeting) I am ready, or at least I believe I am no longer facing the the symptoms of Strep Throat anymore!  A week of antibiotics and zero exercise and zero appetite has kind of turned a corner today:  I have eaten a weeks worth of food this morning.

Who am I kidding?  I am never ready for these things.

I have reached over $1000 this year but I am feeling shamefaced because I enter BOTH races which means I should be raising $2000.  Any takers on putting me over the top?

Go here:

I am proud of the fact that I have raised somewhere north of $10 000 over the last 8 years doing the Adventure Challenge, but I always wish I could raise more.  Next year!

My goal?  To maintain the longest participation streak in the Adventure Challenge ever and to keep raising money for the house.  It is just a good place to be able to do that for!

Good Luck to all Challengers and get your hand up for a High 5 on the running trail:

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!

I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?


Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
