I Valued My Comfort More Than Their Pain

I read a thought provoking editorial in the Globe and Mail this morning, that may give us some insight into why some will refuse to get involved in the lives of those that experience agony and suffering. These comments were made in reference to the horrors inflicted by Russell Williams, but I think they can apply to the situation in Haiti. I have included a excerpt below for you to consider. We as the 100-Mile Team have decided that we will not "value our comfort more than their pain." Will you get involved? -Peter

Santa Shuffle 2010

It appears that we will be running our first race as a group on Dec 4th, 2010. We will be running the 2010 Santa Shuffle 5k in Burlington. If you would like to join us, please email us at and we would be glad to have you. Perhaps now is a good time to think about making a donation for the children in Haiti before we spend all our money on Christmas shopping. Despite the cost and criticism, what can YOU do?

Rick Ball

I had the chance to meet Rick Ball on Oct. 20th. What an amazing individual! He is a textbook example of what we can accomplish despite the obstacles we may face. During our meeting, he showed interest in our project, so maybe all of us may get a chance to meet this inspiring individual. Look up his web site to learn more of his story and athletic accomplishments.
