"The Inaugural Bruce Hadley Memorial Relay Run for Heart is the first partnership of its kind between the Heart and Stroke Foundation of New Brunswick and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This event is being held in honor of Bruce Hadley and the many others who have lost their lives as a result of heart related issues. On August 25th 2007, Bruce passed away as a result of a heart attack. It occurred while he was jogging, something he loved to do on a regular basis. Bruce was only 32 and was from Bathurst, he sadly left behind a loving wife and two young children. As an RCMP officer, he touched the lives of many people and for these reasons, his family, friends, and co-workers have decided to organize this run in his honor. "

Bruce enjoyed running
"Bruce was a role model employee for the RCMP. He worked in the Fredericton, Bathurst and Edmundston areas. Prior to his passing, Bruce was a member of the drug section in Bathurst. Bruce enjoyed giving back to the community by being involved with various groups including Operation Red Nose, minor soccer and Drug Abuse Resistance Education."
This weekend, all my thoughts & prayers along with my energy is sent to my family back in New Brunswick who is at the relay. I love you guys SO much xox

Happiest little girls -- Stephanie & Courtney
We couldn't stay as long as we wanted because of our drive to the Nascar race. Yes, another race! During the drive to the Michigan International Speedway, Adam and I decided we wanted to spend more time with the Smith family so we called and said, we will spend the night! At around 5pm, we were back and Linda made us a fantastic dinner. It was great to catch up with them and the girls. And the final part of our trip was also too short, we spent the day with the girls and before we knew it, it was time to hit the road again. What a wonderful time we had and I thought Michigan was absolutely b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l... Well, there's our trip in a nutshell. It was a great one!!!

The Blue Jackets created this room at Nationwide Children's Hospital for the families. The idea is to create an environment where leaving the comforts of home making this challenging time as comfortable as possible for them. As we were leaving, twelve years old Seth (diagnosed with lukemia) and his mom where on the couch watching some sort of cooking show together.
For our one week wedding anniversary, Adam and I went sports sailing on our friends catamaran boat and it was so much fun. This boat doesn't have an engine and totally relies on a windy day. Unfortunately, it wasn't windy but we actually had a really nice day. My favorite part was just holding on when the sails would catch a bit of wind and the boat would lean over. Let me reassure you that we were strapped into this cruising sail cat. I usually get really sea-sick on boats but not this time.
It was a great time on the water!!
