Run Chisasibi

This weekend, we all volunteered for Run Chisasibi! This is a really big event that draws a ton of people, from all walks of life! It was amazing to see so may people out. Among the participants were families, children, babies, bikes, wheelchairs, and strollers!

There were various starting points for the run, depending on the route distance (21km, 10km, 5km, 1km). The longer distances started out of town along the highway, while the shorter routes started in town. IMG_20160618_085552647_HDR-1

The finish line was at the michaup building in the town core.

As volunteers, we were stationed at various points along the route. Our job was to hand out water, gatorade and oranges and to cheer as the runners passed.

There was such a great sense of community throughout the event! Even some children playing outside joined us to hand out water.  Cleo and Huong added to the spirit of the event by cheering on all the participants!

After the race, there was a big barbeque, and awards and prizes were handed out.
