Walking the Cabot Trail for Simone

Posted on July 26, 2019 under News & Updates with 2 comments


I am asking you to take a few minutes to read this post and please share it with your friends.

I met Simone MacDonald at Sobey’s many years ago. We’re both early birds and we both like to walk. She has a wonderful spirit about her and a pretty decent sense of humour. We always seemed to find something to chuckle about at the checkout. She is also an avid skater.

A few weeks ago, Simone suffered a devastating stroke. She survived but has many hills to climb in the weeks, months and years ahead.

I consider myself among the fortunate ones. My health is good today and I don’t take that for granted. Everything can change in the blink of an eye.

In a few weeks time, I plan to walk around the Cabot Trail and my plan is to dedicate the walk to Simone. I also hope to be able to raise some money for the family as Simone faces a long rehabilitation.

So if you want to help, here’s the deal: The Cabot Trail is 300 kilometres long. Maybe you can contribute an amount of money per kilometre or a set amount. For example, a commitment of .10 cents a kilometre amounts to a donation of $30.

You can send me an e-transfer at lenpdmacdonald@gmail.com or stop by Sobey’s and make your donation there.

Thanks for your consideration.

    I have posted the Sobeys message on FB and will be donating there as I don’t know how to do the g mail thing. This is a great idea Len and good luck on your walk. Read your posts Monday and Thursday and get a kick out of your sense of humour

    An honourable cause and you are indeed an honourable man. I will make arrangements to send you an etransfer in the next week. Godspeed to your friend… and to you on your hike.
