The YMCAs of the Greater Toronto area will be having a Megathon February 24th to March 1st. They will be raising money to “help give more children, teens and adults the chance to learn to swim, find work, stay healthy, play basketball and just have fun!” I plan to participate in 3 hours of AquaFit on March 1st myself. Some other people are doing insane contests of endurance including some friends of mine.
Estelle Havva otherwise known as “The Canadian Goddess” will be challenging Dianne “The Pink Wonder Woman” Mowat to a Rowing Machine Distance Race. Estelle has been mentioned a few times on this site as my head of research and she often gives me the good lane in the pool so I am throwing my support behind her in this contest. Also she won last year!!
Estelle is not only looking to row farther than Dianne she is also working hard to raise as much money as possible, in memory of Erin McBride, a friend and supporter of the Strong Kids Campaign at the YMCA.
