Welcome to The Jim Abernethy Challenge! Jim Abernethy was a member of the Marsh family, an outstanding leader, colleague and friend who we lost last year after his battle with lymphoma. Join us to honour Jim’s legacy with the inaugural 30 day challenge in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada, August 19 – September 15, 2021. Some of you may know that Jim was an avid cyclist so we have designed this challenge to get all of us moving. You can cycle, run, walk or choose any activities that you love! There will be awards for top fundraiser, top cyclist (KM’s), top runner/walker (KM’s), top hours of activity (hours logged) and an overachiever award for the top fundraiser & top activity!

Please check back to see how the challenge teams are progressing towards their collective goal of raising $500,000.

Fundraise Passionately, Donate Generously and STAY CALM & CARRY ON!
