Posted by in Research

Thanks to everyone for entering CMCC’s Virtual Run, Walk and Workout this past April. Your photos were inspirational! We had long distance runs, new runners running, bikers, walkers, gymnasts, weightlifters, and amazing yoga photos. We had only a limited number of prizes, but everyone made such a great effort, we shared all of the images here. Need some inspiration this fall? Have a scroll through the photos! Notable: Chen Ling ran 10km and gave blood!
