Update on TV appearances!

Hey folks!

Ray landed tonight and was welcomed home by a crowd of family and friends! He's so dark we almost didn't recognize him :)

As soon as time and rest allows Ray will be posting himself soon but until then you'll have a number of opportunities to see him on TV:

CBC Newsworld - Sunday Feb.25 - 1:00pm
CTV's Canada AM - Monday Feb.26 - 8:40AM
CBC Ottawa Local evening news - Monday Feb.26

Many thanks to everyone for coming out to support Ray tonight, for keeping up to date with his progress, and for sending encouraging emails while he was away! It has meant a lot to Ray!

It's so very easy to get caught up in life's troubles and forget what's going on in the world around us. A big thanks to Ray, Kevin and Charlie for giving up the past 4 months to remind us all that nothing is impossible. And also for bringing exposure to the water crisis in Africa. We have much to be thankful for as life hands us our possibilities!

Keep those emails of encouragement to Ray coming. Please send to jenny@rayzahab.com

Have a coffee in your hand? ...good enough! Time to raise it to Ray! On Tuesday Feb.20 Ray and the team completed their journey!

It's been done, the impossible has been conquered!

February Update: The Final Leg

Hi Folks!

In just days from now Ray and the team are expected to finish Running the Sahara! I'm quite certain this expedition will seriously raise the bar of all that we consider possible. Kathy left late last week to join Ray for the expedition's last 500Km's, while family and friends will leave in a few days to join them as well. A dip in the Red Sea will complete things and it's expected the team will do this on the 18th or 19th. Ray will likely be home on Feb.23 but I'll keep you posted with updates! There will be a welcoming party at the airport, please feel free to join in! Stay tuned for details regarding arrival time!

Please note that ball class will be cancelled for the next 2 weeks and will resume Feb.27 (6pm).

Will have more updates for you soon! Exciting times!!!
