Did you make any New Year’s resolutions this year? If you did, and you’re finding it hard to stick to some of them, then maybe this can be an inspiration. West Vancouver’s Don Rutledge, who is better known for his involvement in race cars, the hospitality industry and investment portfolios, made a pledge last year. It was time to give something back to himself, and others. So he started to train, and with the help of some very influential friends, he qualified for the ING New York City Marathon. It was time for his friends to pay up on the bet – a bet that helped raise money for a very worthwhile cause – the Zajac Foundation for kids.
