Saturday fun

The first ever Montreal Pinepple Challenge was held today at the park on Ile Ste. Helene . Our son Max participated as part of team calling themselves Nolan's Titans after their inspiration little 17 month old Nolan, who is undergoing treatment for this disease . Nolan is the nephew of Max's friend and colleague Greg who was their team leader . It was a lighthearted way to raise money for research and to support  patients and their families . They had a perfect day and these guys and their support team raised almost $4000. Mike and I went to cheer them on and follow them through the 5km course . I just couldn't keep up with them , they were way to fast for this Omi . I kind of parted ways with them half way through but managed to get to the finish line just as they were doing the last two obstacles . A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon  !
