Thanksgiving…A Time To Be Thankful For Family.

Another note from the Juno Beach Center virtual run.


We Are Thankful For Families!
This Thanksgiving, we want to thank all of you who shared your family Remembrance Day stories. (We have a new story below to share you.) We are forever thankful to those brave Canadians who sacrificed so much for all of us!
Choose one of three Historically Significant Distances¬†and then run or walk to¬†honour a family¬†member who served, or in memory of the Canadians¬†and¬†the sacrifices they made in Normandy – just like Bonnie did in memory of her father, Frank Decareau…
Remembrance Day Race Story Honouring Frank Decareau
Bonnie recently did the 2020 Remembrance Day Virtual Race Walk in memory of her father, Frank Decareau. Her grandson Leland Bowman joined Bonnie for the walk.
The video (below) was taken at the Holy Well Cemetery, Mount Saint Patrick, Ontario following Bonnie and Lelang’s walk. We are so thankful to Bonnie for sharing her family’s story with us!
Remembrance Day Races¬†are three Virtual Running & Walking Events to Benefit the Juno Beach Centre, Canada’s Second World War Museum and Cultural Centre located in Normandy, France.¬†$10 from every registration goes directly to the Juno Beach Centre.
Each virtual race kit includes the incredible, over-sized, commemorative medal (shown above), as well as a beautifully imprinted neck gaitor or mask, a Remembrance Day poppy, a Juno Beach D-Day souvenir map, a keepsake race bib, and more!
Choose one of three Historically Significant Distances:
StrongPoint 1500m, Juno Beach 8K, or Remembrance 21.1K
and then share with us the story of your run or walk to honour a family member or the memory of those Canadians who served.
Who Will You Remember With Your Run?
