Bitter Cold Doesn’t Stop Runners

Bitter Cold Doesn’t Stop Runners

Despite the extreme cold, approximately 50 runners came out last Sunday, February 15th, to compete in the Really Chilly Road Race in support of Childcan. Intrepid members of the London Honda staff were there too to lend their support.

London Honda volunteers – Peter Park, Matt Jackson, Lawrence Lee, Chris Rahim, Carlos Henriques and Andrew Tavares.

At London Honda, we care about giving back to our community and this year we are supporting Childcan a group that raises funds to provide responsive and compassionate support services to families facing the journey through childhood cancer – from diagnosis, treatment, recovery, or bereavement.

Recently our support came in the form of managing a water station for the runners of the Really Chilly Road Race that took place on Sunday February 15th at the Western Fair District.

Even with the extremely cold temperatures, dozens of runners came out to compete in either the 5K or 10K race.

As might be expected, the London Honda water station became more of an ice station than a water station but it certainly didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the participants.

Congratulations to everyone who completed the race and thank you on behalf of Childcan and the families who receive their help.
