Constable Rouleau ROCKS!!! (Sudbury Marathon)

“Throughout my life, I've witnessed the triumphs, struggles and heartbreaking losses experienced by those affected directly and indirectly by cancer. These cumulative experiences have ignited a profound determination in me to make a difference, aiming to contribute in any way possible to alleviate the burden that this disease places on so many lives.

On the 26 May 2024, I’ll be running the SudburyRocks Race, Run or Walk Marathon in full police uniform and boots.

To me, running a marathon mirrors the arduous journey of battling cancer. Both journeys are fraught with numerous highs and lows, testing one's physical and mental resilience. However, in both, the key is to keep moving forward, step by step, day by day, despite the obstacles and setbacks encountered along the way. Each kilometre conquered in a marathon, like each day or treatment endured in the fight against cancer, brings us closer to the finish line.

As part of our journey, I’ll be raising money for the Northern Cancer Foundation. Please follow the link should you wish to support me in doing so: Donors will receive a tax receipt following the event. (Donate Here)

I see this as an opportunity to create a ripple effect of motivation, positivity and empowerment within our community, regardless of your physical abilities. Set your own goals and pursue them relentlessly without comparing yourself to those around you. Don’t be shy or intimidated, I assure you the running community is unbelievably inclusive and supportive.

With that said, please consider joining me or signing up to travel, walk, and/or run any distance you’re capable of. If for whatever reason you’re unable to participate, your willingness to volunteer or attend for encouragement are equally as meaningful to everyone involved.

For those unable to donate, participate or attend, I have one more favour/request. If you're willing, please share any personal stories/pictures—whether they're about yourself, someone you know, or someone you've known—who has faced the ultimate battle against cancer. I promise I will personally read each story. In addition to my own, these stories will serve as profound motivation as I prepare for and undertake my endeavour. I'll hold them close in my thoughts and dedicate my run to those who are/have fought valiantly against this disease.

Emails are also welcomed from those inspired to sign up, attend, or volunteer in any capacity to: Sudbury.Rocks.Rouleau@gmail.com

Thank you.”
- Constable Michael Rouleau, Greater Sudbury Police Service

“No matter what your age you can be great.”
- Kishore Bansal, Author


I think in these times we live in media has a huge impact on us, and particularly in the area of age and ageism. We’re told how to act when we’re kids, teenagers, millennials, middle-aged and older. I feel we need to make our own decisions about what we want to do, and I think that as older males or females we can still move, and that we should do that, and that it’s critical for our health.

I’m trying to disengage from all the hype about what to do and what not to do on TV and social media and just cut a path based on what we want to do, not what they tell us.

I needed to change things up in my running and decided to look back at my race times from when I started in 2002. As I went through race after race I noticed that I had run my personal best times in the 5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon all in 2003. After that it was downhill. It got me thinking about what it would take to beat those times 15 years later in 2017. To even attempt to achieve this goal I knew I needed help, and I knew who to contact: Malc Kent.
