SC2011: Day 3

November 6, 2011


We had a great keynote this morning by Scott Adams on taking care of your body while you’re dealing with cancer.

SC2011 delegates then split up for more workshops on yoga, physical fitness after treatment, brain fog, and becoming engaged with YACC. Since the workshop sessions have restricted numbers, some of the workshops are offered more than once this weekend to allow ample opportunity for everyone to benefit from the knowledge of our fantastic speakers.

This afternoon featured the Survivor Climb, a newer tradition that has spawned off of Geoff’s original Climb on Signal Hill in St. John’s. In 2009, the Climb became a part of the Conference when the delegates, facilitators, and YACC staff drove back from Salmonier Line to climb together for the first time. We continued the tradition last year in St. John’s, but had to modify things a little for the flat(ter) Ottawa terrain.


Participants walked five kilometres from the hotel to Parliament Hill where they held a special ceremony at the Confederation Flame. Check back next week for more details on the Climb; the recap will be much better than what we can include from our remote posting location.


We’ll see you tomorrow!
