This post is a little more personal than some of our other blog posts, so please bear with me..

Timber Benefits is thrilled to be the presenting sponsor for the first-ever Run On for Amy’s House on Sunday, September 26th.

The event includes a 5 km Family Fun Run/Walk and a marathon distance trail run for teams or solo runners.

Join Team Timber at the event, consider making a donation in support of Amy’s House or help by getting the word out.

Why is this important to me?
Amy Alain was a dynamic and life-loving 38-year-old mom of two, a personal trainer and a fellow mom at my kid’s school. After she passed away tragically from lung cancer two years ago, her incredible husband Phil honoured her memory by starting Amy’s House – a home away from home for cancer patients.

Run On for Amy’s House will help raise money so they can keep offering free accommodation to out-of-town cancer patients.

Why is Timber sponsoring this event? 
This event is important... community is important... staying healthy and movement is important..

For all of these reasons, we cannot wait to honour Amy’s incredible spirit by sponsoring this event.

Oh AND we’re also running in the event...! Feel free to grab your sneakers and join Team Timber.
