The Communicators (2022 Walk & Run for rare)

walk-and-run-for-rare-logo.pngI am going to mix my work life in with my home blog a moment and tell you about a fundraising effort I'm involved in for the rare Charitable Research Reserve. Every year since 2010, the organization has run this fall walkathon event to help raise funds for their Turn the Map Green campaign, which pays off the costs of the 1,200+ acres of environmentally sensitive land they currently steward in Waterloo Region and Wellington County. This year, we're changing things up, turning the walkathon into more of a Trail Party, although the fundraising element remains.

I've signed up to walk the 5 km course on Sunday, September 25. Not only is this a good cause, but it's good exercise for me as well. And I've set up a team to broaden the effort. As rare's Communications Officer, and working as a Communications Coordinator for the Canadian Water Network, I know that communications personnel are special people, and we should stick together. So, I've set up a team for the Walk & Run for rare called The Communicators. I call upon my fellow Communications coordinators, officers, clerks, managers, directors and so on to support rare and the work it does. You can donate to my efforts directly here or, if you happen to be in Cambridge on Sunday, September 25 and want to participate in the Walk & Run and Trail Party yourself, you can join The Communicators as a participant here.

You won't regret coming out to take part in this outdoors event, as there will be food and drink, family-friendly activities, live music and more, and any support you can offer will extend rare's protection of the natural lands in Waterloo Region and Wellington County for the benefit of all, now and into the future.

So, how about it, communicators (and anybody else who wants to get involved)? Are you up for the challenge?
