This year for my 50th birthday year, I decided to run/walk the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon for the Music Heals team. Last time I did this event was for 5km in 2014 for the same team. My co-worker, Laarni, and I hardly trained for it which showed with the injury I ran with from 5km point. We trained at the gym on the cardio machines and strengthening training, I attended evening yoga classes. We finished the marathon and that’s all that mattered to us. We didn’t really care about the time but we did quite well at finished time of under 3 ½ hours.
The charity that I believe in so much from the bottom of my heart is Music Heals which is a non-profit charitable organization established in 2012. They are a group of music enthusiasts and music lovers who have come together to help raise awareness of the healing powers of music. Music Heals Charitable Foundation supports a wide range of music therapy services to communities in BC and across Canada. They increase access to music therapy for patients in children’s hospitals, senior’s centres, palliative care, AIDS & HIV programs, at-risk youth, habilitation, and bereavement support.
