Road to Hope

The Road to Hope Marathon is a race along Hamilton’s waterfront and is a fundraising event that any runner or walker can get involved with.  The Road to Hope is actually the number one qualifier for the Boston Marathon!

Galcom International got involved with Road to Hope last year because of our work in Haiti. Galcom is blessed to receive some of the money that is raised on behalf of Haiti.

The race has a 1k for kids, a 5k and a 10k race.  Some of our staff members even run!  Our Executive Director, Tim Whitehead, ran the 10k last year and has been training again this year.  Other staff members will be tackling the 5k this year!  Also, a son of one of our Volunteer Area Representatives will be running the half marathon on Sunday.  Please pray for the group of Galcom staff that will be running as well as those who will be manning our booth!

This year’s Road to Hope is on November 5th and 6th.  Galcom will be participating on both days.  The 1K, 5K and 10K are on the 5th and the half marathon is on Sunday.

If you would like to participate by running, walking or donating, please go to the Road to Hope page: http://hamiltonmarathon.ca/register-now/#.WBd6_PorIdU
