Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
In 2007, I decided to participate in the Walk to End Breast Cancer - a two day, 60km walk around Calgary raising money for Breast Cancer research. I did the walk three years in a row, with four amazing women. And then the walk changed and I stopped. Took a few years off, who knows why. Then a family member was diagnosed and so did the walk for Womens' Cancers two years in a row and then stopped. Who knows why. Life gets busy and other things take priority of one's time.
But, this year, as Cancer is impacting friends around me and I am realizing that I am not a spring chick anymore and will start to hear more and more stories of moms (my age) on my son's lacrosse team, or moms from my daughter's school or that woman beside me at the gym being diagnosed .... well, life isn't that busy and I want to do something.. however small and maybe insignificant, but something.
And so I am doing this run. It's not a marathon, or a 60km walk or a massive bike ride through the mountains but if it brings a bit more awarenesss and I raise a bit of money, then mission accomplished.
I know that everyone is inundated with Fundraising requests... sports teams, school trips, band camps. I get it. I am asking that maybe you forego your drive thru coffee for one week (or two if so inclinded) and make a donation. That's it. Every single dollar helps.
Thank you in advance. And women, get your mammogram done.
