Lots of Skiers Came Out For MOVE – The Kivi Park Fitness Series
Kivi Park MOVE Kids Race

About 30 children took part in the 1km race at the start of MOVE – The Kivi Park Fitness Series.

This past weekend was the start of MOVE – The Kivi Park Fitness Series which is a six-event campaign aimed at getting Sudburians active and raising much needed funds and awareness for the Northeast Cancer Centre.  Despite the cold, the trails at Kivi Park were beautiful and there was a great turn out of both children and adults who raced in the Cross Out Cancer Ski Loppet. The event began with the kids who braved the cold wind to take part in a one kilometre race. Chelsea, Hudson and Edan took the top three spots and you can find the kids’ times here.

Kivi Park MOVE Collin Cameron

Collin Cameron, who will be on this year’s Canadian Paralympic Team,  came out to take part in the 5-K race in the first event in MOVE – The Kivi Park Fitness Series.

The 5-K run was won by none other than Sudburian Collin Cameron who just got back from Germany and the IPC World Cup para-nordic ski event where he won bronze in the men’s sitting cross country sprint winning his first medal of the season. Shortly after he clocked his best ever finish in the 12.5-K individual biathlon race. Though the Canadian Paralympic Team has yet to be officially announced Collin will be part of the team and he’s hoping the compete in the sprint, relay and biathlon races at the Paralympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea which run from March 8th to March 18th.

Congratulations go out to Tim Tindall who won the 15-K race. All times can be found here.
