Annual Walk to Benefit the Journey Room

gordon bristolFor the past 15 years Gordon Bristol has put himself to the test for his birthday, walking from Bridgewater to Mahone Bay and back. Now as his 76th birthday approaches, Gordon has given himself a new challenge: raising funds through his walk for the Journey Room at South Shore Regional Hospital.

“I learned about the Journey Room through another fundraiser,” Gordon says, “and I thought this year, instead of just walking for self-satisfaction, I would raise funds for a good cause.”

The approximately 50 kilometre walk takes about ten hours to complete and will start from South Shore Regional Hospital during the early morning hours of a day during the last week of June.

Gordon says those who want to cheer him on or wave are welcome to do so but just know that he gets into what he calls “the zone”. “After about 4 kilometre I settle in and I feel like I can walk forever, that is until kilometre 48, and then the final two are a struggle.“

If you would like to sponsor Gordon on his walk, call the Health Services Foundation at 902-543-8065.
