An enthusiastic "Well Done" to Verona's own Judy Conway and her daughter Erin. They completed a grueling 32 kilometer walk in Toronto to raise money for the Princess Margaret Hospital "The Weekend to End Breast Cancer Walk". Judy, a self-professed non-exerciser, plunged herself into a summer long, training program to prepare for this long walk. Imagine walking from Verona to Princess St in Kingston. Judy and Erin and 4600 other participants walked that equal distance on Saturday September 12 and helped raise over $11 million dollars. Way to go, Judy!
