Mark Your Calendars! Peri's Olympic Fundraiser Run September 27
By:  Team XC Ottawa   (2009/08/31)

The community of Almonte is organizing a run to help support Perianne Jones for her final preparations for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. She has put in years of dedication and hard work. Now she needs our support to help her in her final preparation.

Come run and help Peri prepare to take on the world at Vancouver 2010!

"I can't really explain how great it is to be from a place like Almonte, it feels like the entire town has been behind me from the get-go, and putting together something like this leading up to the Olympics is pretty extra special.

The run is on September 27th, in Almonte, so come out for the day, or weekend and enjoy with our town has to offer- the Mississippi River, great eats, and beautiful flowers (thanks to my brother the town gardener)."
