Running with Robert - the MS Victory Tour 2007, Charlottetown leg

Elaine Burkholder, Dianne Pye, me, Robert, Cpl. Dave Cheverie, Suzanne, mom

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

It was sunny afternoon and 26 degrees. We met Robert in Stratford. Dianne Pye and Elaine Burkholder ran over from Charlottetown to run with us. There was a police motorcycle escort and Robert's friend Suzanne and mom biked. I ran the first time across the Hillsborough Bridge to Charlottetown. We ran down Grafton Street past Province House to Queen Street to City Hall. Robert met the Deputy Mayor Stu MacFadyen. Dianne and Elaine go back to work and we went to BBQ at Sobeys. Robert is raising awareness and money to find a cure for MS. Mom has MS 11 years ago. Good Luck Robert yesterday was fun. Maybe I see you again at a marathon someday.

The Heart Warming Story of Robert Bertolas

This is an inspirational true-life story of one man's courageous battle to lose a tremendous amount of weight while beating his Multiple Sclerosis into submission. Robert Bertolas is recognized for inspiring many people to become healthier and happier. By showing them how to win their own 'Game' he helps them to achieve their own personal goals.

Author Bio: An established Canadian singer/songwriter, Suzanne temporarily shifted her focus from recording her musical works to literary writing in 2004. She was nominated for a Bernice Adams Literary Writing & Communication award in 2004 after the book 'From MS To Marathon' was released, which this story is based on.
Crossing the bridge from song to book writing was a comfortable move for Suzanne and the joy of bringing to life the story of her best friend Robert increased one hundred fold knowing that money from the sales would be donated to to help people suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.
Suzanne moved to Canada from Wallsend, England as a small child and currently resides in Cambridge, Ontario with her family.
