Neighbourhood Champion: Ken Perino

Ken Perino

I’m 31 years old and I have come to realize that I am definitely not getting any younger. I run because I can’t sit still. I have difficulty staying in one place for any given period of time and movement is the perfect outlet to this effect. I love the challenge of a marathon as the preparation combines the time management and self-discipline required of any successful endeavour, while the race itself tests your limits and merit. Running has been my stress reliever through the perils and pitfalls of shift work, through the challenges and requirements of a Master’s Degree, and as a release/meditation/appreciation at the end of a stressful day or at the beginning of a new one. To put this in the simplest terms, I run because I love it.

Please put a pledge on Ken TODAY for West Neighbourhood House!

Neighbourhood Champion: Kristal McCullough

Kristal McCullough

This will be my second time running the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon. The first time, I sustained an injury while training which seriously impacted my training and led to a time that was not happy with. I want to run this marathon again and hopefully finish with a much better time.

Please put a pledge on Kristal TODAY for West Neighbourhood House!

Team West Neighbourhood House's Cheering Theme — Celebrating our diverse west neighbourhoods

Join the West Neighbourhood House Neighbourhood Challenge cheering stage team on Sunday, October 16th in celebration of our diverse west neighbourhoods! We live in a unique part of the city—our catchment area (about 15 square kms) has more people than most towns in Canada (about 110,000), which means a lot of diverse people working together to face challenges and build strong communities.

Our strength lies in our diversity and we are proud to be a part of so many incredible west neighbourhoods!

We rely on generous donations to keep the House going strong and ask for your support. Support one of our Neighbourhood Challenge Champions that are going the distance for our communities!

If you have any questions about sponsoring a Neighbourhood Challenge Champion or want to join our stage as a cheerer, contact Kaleigh at Kaleighwi@westnh.org or 416-532-7586 Ext. 215.
