The Final Leader Board
Drum roll please!
Our final leader board of the YMCA of Eastern Ontario's 100 km Walk, Run & Roll Challenge for 2020 is here.
Congratulations to everyone who participated.
The leader board doesn't tell the whole story by a long shot. It only shows the totals that we have -- not everyone submitted mileage -- and it doesn't show the personal and team challenges that saw personal bests, those who used the challenge as a way to motivate themselves to become active, or even the stories of relationships that were enhanced by achieving a shared goal.
A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who participated and to everyone who supported the challengers.
The Y cannot work to improve community health and social connections without you.
If you would like to donate, there is still time. Please click on the donate link at the top right of the page.
We will provide the final fundraising tally and names of fundraising prize winners on August 10.
