Three weeks, 21 days, over 650km, from Ottawa all the way back to Hamilton, Frederick and the team made it!
It’s been a journey of strength, tenacity, growth, compassion and relationship building, not only between the Run for Youth team, but all of the people that they met on the journey home.
Frederick was so happy to make it back to his hometown of Hamilton,Ontario on Friday, November 4th at the Liberty for Youth building. Frederick and the Run for Youth team were greeted by many supporters like the Mayor of Hamilton, Fred Eisenburger, RBC branches from Burlington to Hamilton, the Chief of Police and of course his loving wife,Tanya and their 3 boys.
We know that we could not have done this without the support of so many people, too many to mention here, however, we would like to recognize you all, you know who you are and we will ever be so grateful. You helped us complete this victorious marathon and because of that many young lives will be changed today and tomorrow.
We love the youth in our city and those beyond and we want everyone to know that this campaign had everything to do with them and for them.
The Run for Youth campaign will be the first of many to come, maybe not in such magnitude but we will not stop running in order to bring change that needs to take place and the best part is, our youth will be the next runners leading the race.
Frederick passes on this torch and now challenges every young person to meet the challenges that life will throw them with courage, determination, strength and fortitude!
