Liz is a Celebrity Challenger
(Liz) will be representing the Northern Cancer Foundation
in the 5km Vale Celebrity Challenge at the 2019 SudburyROCKS!!!
Here is Liz's story...
I am the Special Events & Marketing Manager for the
Northern Cancer Foundation. I love to set goals and accomplish
them both at work and in life. It’s what motivates
I am honoured to represent the Northern
Cancer Foundation at this year’s SudburyROCKS!!!
Marathon. Being able to combine my passion for running
and the cause that I believe in brings me so much happiness!
My biggest accomplishments are my two
beautiful daughters Ada (8 years old) and Stella (6 years
old). Raising them by example with my healthy and active
lifestyle is my number one goal in life. I can’t
describe the joy I feel watching my two girls race around
the house with my race bibs and wearing my medals. One
of my favourite things about parenting has been to watch
my girls find their own passions like skiing, hockey,
skating soccer and golfing.
In 2018, I accomplished a big long term
goal. I ran a 100km Sulphur Springs trail race (solo).
17 hours of straight running (started at 6:00am and finished
at 11:30pm). It was 6 months of training, running countless
kilometers and some very early mornings. On May 25th I
will be running a 50km race once again at Sulphur Springs
I have also completed at some time or
another 2 half ironman races, 2 50km races, 4 Marathons,
20 half marathons, 20 triathlons and countless shorter
I have traveled all over the world running
races in places like Ireland, Florida, Arizona, Kiawah
Island , Vegas, Victoria BC and many more places. It helps
give me a little extra motivation to be able to turn the
race into a trip with my friends and with my family.
