The ITLNCA NetworkS Association’s President, Antonio Urdaneta, is running The Foxtail Hundred, his first ultra marathon (50 kms), on August 27, 2022 at the Dundas Valley Conservation Area. He’s aiming to raise $9,000.
Any amount raised will be allocated in providing Internationally Trained Lawyers and National Committee on Accreditation Candidates with meaningful Canadian experience, such as summer jobs (ITLNCA OCIs), internships and placements in Legal Clinics and/or not-for-profit legal service providers that support access to justice.
Placement Period: 2023-2024
“There is little or no difference between endurance runners and Canada’s internationally trained lawyers. During their long-time journey preparing for the race, they both feel drained, they both face debilitating doubts, and for some reason, they both keep going with unbreakable resilience. They push through the pain, they somehow quiet their doubts, and they keep their goal in sight: crossing the line. And finally, when they cross the line, which they will, they tell themselves: huh! I did it! And now what? What’s my next challenge?” Antonio F. Urdaneta
