I’m going back to the scene of the crime. My first international marathon with Team Diabetes was in August 2003 in Reykjavik, Iceland. I’ve been asked to come on board and lead a band of XL103 listeners to the land of fire and ice and I’m excited to go back.
If you’re interested, there will be an information seminar at the Shawnessy YMCA on Tuesday night.
Here’s the press release:
Join Buzz Bishop and walk or run a 10K, half marathon or marathon with Team Diabetes in Reykjavik on August 18, 2012 and help the Canadian Diabetes Association make a difference in the lives of the 9 million Canadians and someone you know with diabetes or prediabetes.
The world’s most northern capital city is located in Iceland, known as the “Land of Fire and Ice”. A visually stunning region, it abounds with glaciers, hot springs, geysers and volcanoes. Much of the course follows the area’s beautiful coastline and starts and finishes in the heart of downtown Reykjavik. The annual Cultural Night, which coincides with the marathon, attracts nearly half the Icelandic population. Complete your event and then celebrate with the locals!
The funds raised support diabetes education, research, advocacy and programs. Challenge yourself and in return for your fundraising efforts, you will receive amazing benefits including:
· Return airfare from Calgary
