“Happy New Year 2017!

“Over the past few years we have grown our participation in the Scotiabank Blue Nose Charity Challenge from 30 to 100 team members; raising tens of thousands of dollars for youth music programs and winning awards doing it! (Symphony Striders won Biggest Fundraising Team 2 years in a row!)

“Congratulations and a HUGE thank you. I hope you have had as much fun being involved as I have. So much fun that we are all ready to join in again May 19 – 21! Register now as rates will go up!

“I am pleased to introduce you to our 2017 Team Captain Jordan Fisher (already registered for the 10 K run). He is available to help you with registrations, questions, fundraising ideas, and invites to our team events (like the shirt pick-up night at Garrison Breweries).

“I look forward to training and running with all of you to support our youth programs like Link up, Family Series, school concerts, and more.”
