Aug 1, 2021
Wasn’t going to do a post today, as it is considered a “day off”. 
But after having a great weekend in Wawa despite the T storms with Cam Fall, Caralena Dumanski, Cara and Camila visiting us, and meeting Dayton at the campground, I thought I would post a quick update.  
It’s for people like Dayton and his daughter why I am doing this FalloRick Hone to Home Run for Childhood Cancer Canada and Make-A-Wish Canada. 
And loving every step of the way. 
Still on time to run into Sault Ste. Marie on August 7th. 
Arriving at the City Civic Centre around 1;00. 
Anyone can join me at anytime or anywhere
Along the route. 
Please check back to see if anything changes.

W. of Dubreuiville to Wawa , ON 
44 km today
3,663.71 km achieved so far!

What’s on my mind? 
Good question. 
It sure feels like this journey is coming to an end fast. Feels like it has been a long time, but also feels like we just got started. 
But the journey for so many children has been a long one. 
Their journeys must “feel” like they may never end, but sure would like their difficult times come to an end. 
We can all help by doing good for others. 
I have taken it upon myself to go through some tough times as I run from “Home to Home”. But when things get tough, I could choose to quit, but I just have to think about what these children are going through with no choice and I keep on going for them. 
Please help with this journey by going to FalloRick and make a donation to Make-A-Wish Canada and Childhood Cancer Canada by going to FalloRick (.com) 
Today was another big day for a couple reasons. 
First, made it to more than 1,000 km into Ontario, leaving just over 200 km to go to get to Sault Ste. Marie. 
Second, made it to “the Goose” in Wawa. 
Will be taking a couple days off to spend with Cam Fall, Caralena Dumanski,  Cara and Camila in Wawa. Praying 🙏 for good weather. 
Got in 44 km today, getting to 5 k south of Wawa, then found our way to  Rock Island Lodge  for the night. 
Plan for getting into the Sault on August 7th, is to leave from Trout Lk Rd/Hwy 17 at 10:30 getting to TMS Truck Centre Ltd. around 11:30-11:45. 
Then getting to the Water Tower Inn around 12, noon, leaving at 12:15. 
Going down Pim St. To Queen St. to Brock and getting to the Civic Centre around 1:00 to meet the Mayor or designate and a “COVID in mind” welcome home gathering. 
Please invite others to join us rain or shine. 
We will be taking tax deductible, online and cash donations, hoping to reach closer to the goal.

Depew River to W. of Dubreuilville, ON 
40.95 km today
3,619.71 km achieved so far!

Looking at the “Where is Rick Now” link on Rick Fall (.com), makes it look like we’ve come so far, and just a short way to go. 
But there is still quite a ways to go to help reach higher for: @MakeAWishCanada and @ChildhoodCancerCanada
Got started by 8:00 from Depew Rest stop. After a good sleep, was able to
put in 19 k to get to Fishing Moose Lodge. 
Then 13 k to Closed up Halfway Lodge. Short break before getting going again for 9 k to Hwy 519. 
Met Sonny Spina on his way home from Dubruilville. He saw Colette Michel-Fall  waiting at the intersection and was told I was just a bit away. So he seeked me out. Had a great visit with him and Jordan on the side of the hwy. 
saw the train going under me, thought it was a good shot. 
No cell service, so we drive into Wawa  to find it. Had an early dinner at the Viking, and headed back out to the stopping/starting point. 
40 k to Wawa. Then a few days off to have a camping visit with Cam Fall, Caralena Dumanski and the girls.

Shortest Running Day Yet. But yet still a great day.

It was a great morning off in White River to sleep in a bit and get some shopping done. So got going for an 11 km run around 2:00 pm. 
Got to the very nice Depew River Rest stop where we met Mohamed and his family. They are on the move from Winnipeg to London. Mohamed put together a YouTube Video he will post to attract more donations for Childhood Cancer Canada and Make-A-Wish Canada from around the world.

White Lake Lodge to White River, ON 
26.52 km today
3,567.73 km achieved so far!

Day 105 since starting FalloRick Home to Home for Make-A-Wish Canada and Childhood Cancer Canada. 
Over 3,600 km behind me with 317 (ish) to go.
Made it to White River today. 
It was a smoky day. Good thing it was a planned short day. 
After meeting up with Winnie the Pooh, (who was originally from White River), we met the Mayor of White River Angelo Bazzoni who gave a generous donation and allowed us to park at his XTR gas station/convince store for the night with hookups. 
Depending on the smoke situation, I will decide if we continue we it’s a short run toward Wawa or stay put for the day. 
Met a number of more very nice and generous people. Including two Christian Bikers and a family that has been “Fallo ing” this journey. 
Getting closer to home and getting nearer to the fundraising goal. But there is more to go. 
Please visit, “Fallo”, and donate at FalloRick.com

Marathon to Cache Lake, ON 
30.86 km today
3,506.98 km achieved so far!

Not a huge day today, but all these days are important days. 
Got out of Marathon this morning. 
I must admit, I did NOT do the 5 k uphill back to the highway. 
Hills were not too bad today, good th, because it got warmer than expected. 
Got in 30 k getting me just short of Hemlo Mine. Leaving LESS THAN 400 km to get to the Sault. 
Included is a goofy selfie video of me getting into Marathon that I did not include in yesterday’s post. 
Officially over $65,000 raised for Childhood Cancer Canada and Make-A-Wish Canada. 
With less than  400 k to go to get to the Sault let’s see how high we can reach.

Neys Park to Marathon, ON 
29 km today
3,476.12 km achieved so far!

Thursday, July 22, day 102 on the road 92nd day running. 
Today was another mile stone day. Not a marathon day but an into Marathon day. I’ll explain, I did not run a full marathon today, but I did run into Marathon. 
Started off the day with a 3 kilometre steep incline then a little bit downhill then up-and-down for about 10 K. Then a long steep incline for about 5 km. Finishing the day into Marathon with a 5K downhill. 
Met more construction workers along the way who were impressed. A guy from the Soo, Nolan Benoit, stopped to meet me on the road on the way into Marathon. He had been Fallo ing me for quite a while. 
Today was a great run day for Make-A-Wish Canada and Childhood Cancer Canada.   
Please continue to help by going to Rick Fall  (FalloRick.com) and hit that donation link. 
We also met a nice family who are camping across the road from us.They are from Quebec travelling home.
Getting into Marathon  Colette Michel-Fall  looked up Elodie Burton, a lady who she lived with while she was nursing in Marathon in 1986. Lovely reunion they had together.
