Many of these visits along the route are what brings Frederick and the team enjoy the visits along the route receiving a lot of joy and the stamina to keep going. Thank you ladies for a wonderful experience.

Things are not slowing down for the Run for Youth team on weekends. This past weekend included a memorable visit to a First Nations Youth Rally Concert on Sharbot Lake,Ontario. Frederick even took part in a special tribal dance with an Aboriginal Women’s Drum Circle. It was a fantastic night as Frederick gave two ab
original youth, The Personal Growth Award 2016 from Liberty for Youth. The Run for Youth team enjoyed the festivities and made memories they will not soon forget.

This is the reason Frederick is running 650km. These young people are his heart and the inspiration behind this campaign. Such a pleasure to give this award to these young aboriginal youth.

We are so grateful to Old Navy for their partnership to the Run for Youth campaign. Back in May, 2016, Old Navy from Limeridge Mall in Hamilton,Ontario made a pledge of $15,000.00. They also hired six of our Youth in our programming. As well, they have set up buckets to receive donations from their customers. We are so grateful to Old Navy for caring about our youth and the Run for Youth team looks forward to meeting more Old Navy stores along the way.
