My Circuitous Path to Renison...and the Journey Beyond

Marilyn Coffman

When I was four years old I knew I wanted to be a nurse – not just any nurse, but a pediatric nurse who would train at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. I had spent time there as a patient so my passion for nursing became part of my DNA!

My journey from a participant to an organizer for the AHS Fun Run

Participants running in the AHS Fun Run

Looking to walk, run, or just have fun? This year, not only is Canada celebrating its 150th birthday, but the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) is celebrating its 50th anniversary and the University of Waterloo is celebrating 60 years of innovation!  I encourage you to join us at Reunion 2017 to participate in the 32nd annual AHS Fun Run to make this year of celebration one for the books!

You either win or you learn!

My story is widely known in Athletics but perhaps not so well known among the greater university community.

It started innocently enough.  In the winter term of 2010, a hockey player in my class invited me to a game.
