McGuire’s run across Canada reaches Eastern Ontario

David McGuire, after sustaining a brain injury in 2005, was told he might never walk again. So he started running. And running. And running. McGuire completed his first marathon in 2006, and this year he decided to take on the ultimate run: a trip across Canada. He left St. John’s on March 31, and is now making his way through Ontario. “I am just a guy with brain injury – but I can run, and I have a story to tell” says McGuire. The event is called A Run to Remember; David is working with BrainTrust Canada, a non-profit organization involved in national injury prevention strategies. The net proceeds of the run will create a legacy fund to promote brain injury prevention and develop new support strategies for people living with brain injury in Canada. Funds can be contributed through the website where there are several options such as buying a km for $20, or by texting “Brain” to 45678 to contribute $5 on your phone bill, for any carrier.
