Hello peeps, thanks so much for stopping by. You might be wondering what this is all about, so here goes:

Jonas (12), Lukas (9) and I are going to run the 10 Km Sun Run for the Inasmuch community society. 

Inasmuch House is an extraordinary place. It offers a home to people who were forced to leave their lives in their home countries and who have found a safe haven in Canada. They are in the process of claiming refugee status here. Inasmuch House sets them on a path to independence and building their lives in Canada to become contributing members of Canadian society.

The house is full of joy and love and laughter. It changes the lives of everyone who comes into contact with it - whether they're family members, donors or volunteers. 

Inasmuch house is an organization that quietly goes about changing the world for the better and the boys and I are thrilled to raise funds for such an amazing cause.  

We'd really love it if you would consider sponsoring us to run the 10 km Vancouver Sun Run on April 17th to help raise much needed funds for the operational expenses of the home. 

Anything you could contribute - even in a small way, will make a huge difference and motivate us runners! Trust me, with the boys getting stronger every day, I'll need all the motivation I can get to be able to keep up with them (probably starting at Km 3!!)

We've secured a matching grant from a generous donor who will match your contribution dollar for dollar up to $1,000, so the effect of your donation will double.

If you'd like to know more about Inasmuch house, you can check out the following links. A new website is in the works too!
