30 Day YYC Man-A-Thon. 30 days can start a habit. 30 days can make a difference. 30 days can change your life. In Alberta, 1 in 7 men will develop prostate cancer, but that’s not all. Men live an average of five fewer years than women, are at higher risk of heart attacks than women, and are less likely to see a health care provider. We want to change that. By making small, healthy habits a part of each day, you can lower your risks. By incorporating just one change for 30 days, you can begin a healthy habit. One small change can make a big difference; one small change might even save your life. Go to www.manathon.ca to sign up and start your 30 day change.

Awakening to Plant Consciousness brings this together by aligning likeminded individuals in one place to share and explore. Dr. Richard Jelusich invites you to come participate in the Awakening to Plant Consciousness Conference in Calgary! This is the time of the awakening of our being to the connectedness of all things. Our key note speaker, Miguel Angel Vergara, Master Teacher, Mayan Shaman and former director of Chichen Itza, will joined by teachers and wisdom-keepers from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, to present their research and inner explorations. In this three day conference of consciousness, you will learn how plants communicate and “speak.” You will also become versed in the true nature of plant medicine, the consciousness of plants and how to communicate with them. In addition, you will be exposed to herbs and remedies, how to choose medicinal and edible nature plants where you live, and much more. http://lightnews.org/awakening-to-plant-consciousness-june-23-25-2017-calgary-ab/

Runner planning to participate to the 150K solo run during the Calgary Marathon Race Weekend is looking for one or more volunteer(s). Every runner must sign up at least a volunteer but my friends and family will not make the trip from Montreal to Calgary. This event would enable me to celebrate a special milestone, by completing my 150th marathon or ultra-marathon on Canada’ 150th anniversary, at Canada's longest running marathon. Only a few hours of work are required at a volunteer station Saturday night / Sunday morning (details to be provided by the Race Director later). If you have a few extra hours, you would be most welcome to crew for me the rest of the time, but this is optional since I will be able to be self-sufficient while on course. Post-recovery meal and refreshment(s) would be on me :-) Please contact me ASAP if you’re interested! Thanks. Bruno
