ReNewton Nation

I met Jude Hannah at the Arts Council of Surrey’s AGM a couple weeks ago. Jude is a local artist and the creator of the ReNewton Nation, a movement to improve community, business, and the arts in the Newton area of Surrey. Up until a couple weeks ago, I had only known of the organization through their generous retweeting of Youth Arts Council of Surrey’s news and events.

After having been given permission to use a good chunk of land on King George Blvd around 64th Avenue, ReNewton had been trying to implement a community garden. Unfortunately, it seems as if the project is a non-starter due to budget and timing. There is still, however, the potential to use the land for another arts and community-related purpose!

If you have any ideas or would like to be involved be sure to visit the ReNewton blog and connect with them on Twitter and Facebook!



I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I’m not sure what changed but i’m glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys.

Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!
