Montreal - Thursday, September 29, 2022

Bradley Heaven, middle, and Dan O’Connor, right, crossed the finish line of the 2022 Montreal Marathon on September 25, 2022. Cheering them on were River Fraser, 12, a student at Mackay Centre School and his sister Sky, 9. Heaven, O’Connor and their team of runners ran the 42.2-kilometers event as part of a fundraising mission to raise money for their non-profit company, All Access Life. The website provides information on the latest trends in adaptive products.

“We strive to provide hope and inspiration by accomplishing this type of major challenge. It is also part of our No Limits mindset, which is all about showing to people that anything is possible with the right mindset. Don't let people define you, set your goals high and conquer!” said Heaven.

The pair’s goal was to raise $1 for every meter they ran before the end of October.  Heaven and O’Connor were the recipients of the Simon Chang Difference Maker Award in November 2020.
