EARLY UPDATE FOR THE FRED BIGELOW 100K

Register for the Fred Bigelow 100K Memorial Run at https://raceroster.com/events/2020/35137/fred-bigelow-virtual-100k

Wow, what a great start. The Fred Bigelow 100K Memorial Run is off and running…and biking…and hiking…and paddling…well, you get the drift. We have 118 participants registered so far and more expected as we go through the month long event, Nov 1 - 30. There is still loads of time to get on board. Registration stays open until Nov. 29 but many of us will need the full 30 days to get the 100K under our belt.

Fred would be (is) well pleased with the excellent turn out for this fundraiser from our community and beyond. His daughter Stephanie is putting in her mileage on the other side of Canada and CVRR member Gail Sheil is plodding away on her home turf in Australia. Fred’s wife Sarah got a great start yesterday at Nymph Falls with 8 members of their running group; Fred Jagger and the Running Stones. There are several groups that have banded together to unite in this 100K challenge and remember Fred.

The fundraising component of this event is in Fred’s name and his charities of choice are the Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS) and the United Riders of Cumberland (UROC). Your registration proceeds will be shared equally between them. Be aware that neither CVRR nor UROC can issue tax receipts. CCFS can if you want to donate extra directly to their cause use this link https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/cumberland-community-forest-society/campaign/fred-bigelow-memorial-100k/
or go to their website. https://www.cumberlandforest.com/

Direct donation to UROC can be accomplished here https://unitedridersofcumberland.com/

 

Each registered participant who successfully completes the 100k goal will receive a metal shoe tag with a unique Fred'ism mantra hand stamped in to it. Many of us over the years have been given high praise from Fred in the immortal words…”You Don’t Suck”.
