The Run to Live is making its way into New Brunswick on Monday, marking the fourth province on the tour.
The Run to Live is a single individual, Scott Cannata, who is trying to run a marathon a day across Canada to raise funds for cancer research in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society.
“The support that we have received so far on our cross Canada tour is truly over whelming”, says Cannata. “We could not be more grateful to all of the people that have opened up their homes to us in the past few weeks as well as the lodging businesses who have donated rooms for us to sleep at night. While running a marathon a day, these people and businesses have definitely made a huge difference in our travels. As we move onto New Brunswick, we continue to look forward to meeting new people and spreading the word to help us raise more funds and awareness for cancer research for the Canadian Cancer Society.
“I am doing this for you, I am doing this for your parents and your children, I am doing this for those who have not survived, I am doing this for those who have survived and for those who WILL survive. I live to run and I run to live, now it’s time to run so others can live,” he adds.
