Trent University student Scott Cannata started The Run to Live in St. John’s, Newfoundland on May 1, 2011. After completing over 200 marathons, over 8,500 km and across 10 provinces, Mr. Cannata finished his journey on January 16, 2012 in Port Renfrew, BC.
“Therefore be it resolved that I, Daryl Bennett, Mayor of the City of Peterborough, do hereby proclaim February 2, 2012 as Run to Live Day in the City of Peterborough and congratulate Scott Cannata and his team for their efforts to make cancer history,” proclaimed His Worship, Mayor Daryl Bennett on Thursday, February 2, 2012 at the homecoming event held at the Trent Community Sport and Recreation Centre at Trent University.
Starting out in St. John’s, Newfoundland on May 1, 2011, Trent University student Scott Cannata faced a daunting task – to run the equivalent of a marathon a day across Canada in support of cancer research. 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. For more information regarding The Run to Live, visit www.theruntolive.com.
