YES I want to sponsor Brian Groot in his Ultra VON run!

 Go Brian Go 


Brian Groot finished 120 km June 24-25

marking VON Canada's 120th birthday!  


Brian's incredible run helped us raise 

over $67,500 for local VON programs & services! 

Thank you Brian & team (Christie, John, & Mom too)!

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 150 km in 24 hours

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

Please consider pledging me!  

To make things simple here are some options:

Pledge .25¢ per km = $37.50

Pledge .50¢ per km = $75

Pledge $1 per km = $150

Pledge a lump sum!

Click here to make your pledge for me now!

Every donation $20 or more gets you a charitable tax receipt.


My new bride Christie Groot & mentor John Brennan are my support team - but you're invited to join me as a "buddy runner" by clicking here.

Help us spread the word - like and share on Facebook.

Thank you for supporting me and helping VON!

I hit the trails Saturday, June 24th and plan to finish my final laps Sunday morning, June 25th.

Cheer me on - bring your family and friends -  join the Walk.

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

... one step at a time!
