Starting out in St. John’s, Newfoundland on May 1, 2011, Trent athletics personal trainer and student Scott Cannata faced a daunting task – to run the equivalent of a marathon a day across Canada in support of cancer research.
Eight months later on Monday, January 16, 2012, and with more than 200 marathons completed, Mr. Cannata ran straight into the Pacific Ocean off the shore of Port Renfrew, surrounded by family, supporters and Trent alumni.
Mr. Cannata and his team have raised funds close to $40,000 through the Run to Live which has been supported by the Canadian Cancer Society.
Members of the Trent University community are encouraged to leave messages of congratulations for Scott and the Run to Live team on their official Facebook page www.facebook.com/theruntolive. A welcome home event is being planned and will be announced closer to the team’s arrival home at Trent University.
