The boots put on a few more kilometers this week and how delightful it was tramping along the colourful leaf laden pathway.  Another one of us had a different view as she hiked Dover Hill near her home in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, England. They sure are healthy looking sheep! 

Some of us walked COVID style, safely distanced while others walked with those in their "bubble".  This week a swimmer joined our ranks...good thing too as we are now on the ocean heading toward the Turks and Caicos Islands.  I have to let everyone know that unfortunately Ethan lost his crown as the youngest trekker participating as we now have Gregory on board who is 9 years old.   He is joined by his brother and sister who are 13 and 15 respectively.  They all merit crowns though for their participation....hats off to each of them ! 

I'm happy to share pictures of some of several of our happy trekkers. First up Lea and Ethan (who is our youngest trekker at 11 yrs old......way to go Ethan!!! ) Lea writes: "My grandson Ethan and I are starting out on our daily trek to Haiti— he’s trekking with his dog Talley  in Montana and I’m trekking in Ancaster, Ontario - raising funds for a great cause- Hospital Albert Schweitzer".......

 

Next up Brad and Elinor who have been putting some "miles" on their bikes the last two weekends.  This week they got a little smarter and rode a route that was mostly downhill....having learned a lesson or two from the previous weekend when most of it was slogging uphill. ....good on ya! 

 

And last but not least Hal and Adrienne trekking the Appalachian Trail.....no, not the one on the US east coast but along their street and neighbourhood in Hamilton on a beautiful fall afternoon. 

Greetings everyone:  I am happy to report that we have made good progress on our TREK2HAS this week.  A number of others have joined us this week, which means there are now 43 participants walking/running/cycling their stretch of the route to HAS.   Tonight (Sat.) we will "arrive" in Savannah, Georgia.  

 

It is Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend...a time to reflect on the Blessings in our lives.  Despite the challenges that the COVID pandemic has given us, we still have much for which to be thankful.  One of them is the support we (CFHAS) have received from all of the participants, donors and sponsors who are giving of themselves this month to help the Mothers and Children for whom the Hopital Albert Schweitzer provides care.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE !

...and so my  Trek begins along the shores of Lake Ontario )with a few seagulls to keep me company) on a beautiful fall day

Hi everyone:  I’ve got my walking shoes set to go Oct 1 to get our trek going....how about you?  It’s not too late to register to join the other 17 participants thus far signed up.  C’MON JOIN US!
