This year to celebrate our Canada 150th birthday , your/ our volunterr TEAM CDN ! have changed our basic 10 K or less group format ....... to a more individual 10 K or less format wherever YOU may be located around the world ... or at camp ... or attending a seminar ... or sitting in your own backyard !

Please visit our volunteer web site at www.curediabetesnow.hurontel.on.ca especially the links at the bottom of the page and let us know how you think we can make this web site more effective !

The fun family fitness idea inspired by my two grandsons this week at a summer camp in beautiful British Columbia is to challenge " kids of all ages " to our STEP # 1 : throughout the year ... to simply try to walk, run, jog our 10 K as per above Goderich map ...OR ... create your own 10 K or less course wherever you are located !

We only ask that to qualify for our Team CDN ! Lucky Prize draw this Thanksgiving 2017 weekend .....AND ..... for our 2018 Canada Day .. that you email us your name , age and weight and your own 10 K or less time , date and location .

The basic good idea here is that no matter what your age or 10 k time is , YOU are competing only against yourself year to year !

And It is OPTIONAL ...... if you want to raise pledges ( or not ! ) for our volunteer Team CDN diabetes and obesity research at Western University in London Ontario and Western will issue official tax receipts for full amount of pledges or cheques $ 20 . and over !

Please note that if YOU and your own Team CDN ! wish to enter our 17th annual scenic -rain or shine - Canada Day 2018 Team CDN ! " Tiger Dunlop " 10 K or less in GODERICH on July Ist 2018 , you must email us at glenfield1862@gmail.com or compassnews1943@gmail.com before registration deadline of June Ist 2018 !

GODERICH DASH for DIABETES 2014 - background and story at:

2015 Dash 4 Diabetes Run:



The HARDEST thing in the world to sell is an idea.

TEAMWORK is the ability to work together towards a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments towards organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.

"We can never give up the belief that the GOOD GUYS always win. And that we are the good guys." pg.85 The Popcorn Report 1990

Success to TEAM CDN! is..."to laugh often and much; to win respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends and family; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life had breathed easier because you had lived. THIS is to have succeeded." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
