Announcement from Mr Gage and something to do this Saturday, May 16th!

Hello Brentwood,

I just wanted to take a minute to draw your attention to the virtual race series that is taking place again this weekend. Essentially you would run as far as you can in 10 minutes and then enter the distances for each member of your team. This series is open to anyone – you don’t have to be a rower – you can enter with friends, teammates or family. We have registrations from all over Canada and as far away as Australia!

The registration link is below or you can reach out directly to Mrs Biesenthal if you have questions. (laryssa.biesenthal@brentwood.bc.ca)
