Hello, fellow residents of Windsor-Essex county. My name is Josh Horan and I wanted to take my time during this pandemic to spread some positivity. I live in Belle River, Ontario and thought to myself during this time off, “I wonder if I can run from my house to the Ambassador bridge.”
I also wanted to help make an impact, in supporting our brothers and sisters on the frontlines as our healthcare workers. They are putting their lives on the line, spending time away from their families, doing their part in helping the world overcome covid-19. I am attempting to raise money to go towardsANYTHING necessary to help them and anyone affected during this crisis.
I am an electrician, and union member of the IBEW 773. Our local has partnered with Mezzo Ristorante in providing meals to healthcare workers and those in need at hospitals in our area.
I am proposing an annual fundraiser, commencing this year to raise awareness for different causes every year. During this global pandemic and part of history, the urgency of attaining our Mega Acute care Centre for our region is all too real. However, the issue at hand is helping members our community during this crisis.
Next year, perhaps the focus can be on mental health, homelessness, or other issues that directly affect our community and all of us as people of this area. Our Home.
• I am an amateur runner.
• I’ve never run a marathon (this will be my first).
• I exercised semi-regularly at a local gym before covid-19 emerged.
• The run is 32 km is length. Starting at the Belle River bridge and finishing at the foot of the Ambassador bridge.
• I have begun to train and diet in preparation
• However, today is April 14th, 2020 and we don’t have time to waste in helping out
• I’m giving myself two weeks to train
• The Bridge to Bridge run will happen on May 1st, 2020
I would appreciate any contribution to help those medical workers on the front lines. Even if it’s a share or like on social media to help spread the message. I hope to see you at the finish line.
Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
