July 18, 2010 - Another Pride Doubleheader!
Well, today started out with an early morning wake up as i needed to get myself over to Mundy Pond to help set up the St. John's PRIDE running team for the 5k 'run for respect' to raise money for the NL Sexual Health Centre. As team captain, i am pleased to report that the project was a success, as many of the people i recruited did indeed show up! Together, we raised over $200 for the cause, and all had great runs.
Later in the day, it was the Pride Picnic, where i had a chance to mingle with some colleagues, and throw around a football for the first time in a while! the day remained cloudy right up until 5 pm, when the sun finally peaked through. As i was walking home, i took a short nap on a picnic bench by the pond. I also had a chance to see some more baby duckies! (depicted is me with 5 of the 6 other Pride team members; and me at the picnic with former president of Egale Canada, and former NDP candidate, Gemma-Schlamp-Hickey.)
