Hi my name is Brian Groot.  

I'm an ultra runner originally from Strathroy and I'm asking the question

"how far would you go for VON?"


This year I'm stepping in to help VON Middlesex-Elgin by 

running 120 km in 24 hours

at the 18th annual Great Community Run, Walk 'n' Roll.

THANK YOU to those who pledged me!  


Special thanks to my new bride Christie Groot & mentor John Brennan - my incredible support team! 

   Together we can help VON make a difference in people's lives

... one step at a time!
