Run to Raise Awareness about Clean Drinking Water

A message from Carolyn Trono:

Hi everyone,

My son, Jesse Reitberger, is helping to promote  Hassan Syed who is visiting Winnipeg as a part of a cross Canada run from Vancouver to Ottawa, to raise awareness of the water crisis faced by Aboriginal communities.  They are inviting any Winnipeggers who are concerned about clean drinking water in Aboriginal communities and who also like to run, walk or jog to meet at the Legislature to run from there to Thunderbird House. This will happen Friday July    7th at 2:30pm

For more information, contact Jesse Reitberger at jesse.reitberger@gmail.com.
