I am participating in Cops for Cancer 2019 - Tour De Valley to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
Giving back has always been important to me. My Grandmother taught me first hand to help anyone in need if you are able and most importantly willing. I lost her to cancer in 2004 and although it has been 15 years it seems like yesterday. Everything I have done I do in memory of her, like joining the Miss BC pageant for the second time. I always commit to things but then let my low self esteem push me away from finishing. Not these past few years though! After coming out about my childhood trauma and domestic violent past I have encouraged others to do the same. To stand up and fight for themselves. My goal is to teach other women we are beautiful in all shapes, sizes and colours. That we all matter!!
I will fundraise my little heart out for this amazing cause because I know cancer, like abuse, is felt through too many households. Together we can make a difference!
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
Thanks for your support!
