We went international again this year with a Tour stop in Victoria, British Columbia. The last Sunday in May is when all of Canada has fundraising walks for CF, and since we did Vancouver in 2003, we figure it was Victoria's turn. Carol has wanted to visit Butchart Gardens for a long time and visit the castles in town, so we took off on Friday for three days of being tourists.
This was the first year for Great Strides-type events in Canada, but Brandy Patterson and Debra Mattson of the Victoria Chapter did a great job pulling this together. Over 170 walkers and runners raised over $18,500, well over their goal of $15,000.
Since this was also a mini-vacation we did a lot of other things besides the walk, so you get two pages of photos.
