This year I’m participating in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure on October 2nd. I’ve been meaning to do it for a number of years and I’ve finally decided to stop just talking the talk, and start walking the walk.
Well, running the run, actually.
First and foremost, I am running in memory of my wonderful Aunt Anne, a hilarious woman with a huge heart and brilliant spirit, who passed away from breast cancer a few years ago.
I am also running for the estimated 23,000+ women (and 500+ men) who will be diagnosed with breast cancer, in Canada, this year alone.
I am running in support of the brave souls currently going through treatment, on their way to overcoming the disease.
And I am running for all you amazing survivors who have stood toe-to-toe with breast cancer and kicked its sorry tail.
For those not running, you can still make a difference! With your support, the Foundation will continue funding breast cancer research, education and health promotion initiatives across the country, making a difference from coast to coast. To learn more about the work the Foundation does, visit www.cbcf.org.
Every donation counts and helps the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation move closer to achieving its vision of creating a future without breast cancer.
If you feel moved to make a donation, please visit my personal participant page at www.runforthecure.com/goto/sesc. Any amount of would help.
Thank you for considering my request. I really appreciate it!
