CF fund raising surpasses 20,000 dollars.

Owen Sound | by Kevin Bernard  

A Niagara woman is part way through her run of the Bruce Trail.

An update on the story we told you about earlier this month,  a Niagara woman has now covered 250 kms of the 895 km long Bruce Trail while raising money for Cystic Fibrosis.

Emily Allan is in the Owen Sound area Friday, after travelling from Tobermory down the Bruce Peninsula over the past week. 

So far, Allan has raised 20 thousand dollars for CF during her marathon run. 

Each day, she wakes up in a new town along the Bruce Trail with one goal in mind: to cover more ground, and raise more money for Cystic Fibrosis.

The cross-country coach and an employee in Brock University’s Faculty of Applied Health Sciences, will finish her run at Queenston Heights on Canada Day.

Cystic Fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian kids and young adults. 

Emily is doing the run in memory of her cousin Sarah Bloomfield, who died of the disease at the age of 23.

Some of the highlights of the run so far include travelling over 46 kms in one day, and encountering 2 rattlesnakes on the trail.
