Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
"Nana, are we there yet?" That's the name of my team for the Run for the Cure, named after a nana who is no longer with us.
Family legend has it that nana's grandkids often asked her this question en route to the family cottage each summer. It also caused me pause this year. "Nana, are we there yet?"
Sadly, Nana, we are not there yet. The disease that took nana takes the lives of hundreds of other women. In fact, 70 Canadians every day will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Seventy.
That could be you mother. Your sister. Your wife. Your best friend. Your daughter. It could even be a man in your life. While rare, men also can be diagnosed with breast cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society estimates 60 men died from the disease in 2017.
I've decided on a very aggressive fundraising target this year and would be so grateful for your support.
As in past years, I'm going to be working hard for my donations. For donating to my cause, here's what you'll get:
- The knowledge that you contributed to try to make breast cancer history.
- For every $10 with any donation under $50, you get to pick a song that I have to run to on one of my practice runs (so $50 would get you five songs).
- For every donation greater than $50, I will run 5km in your name for every $25 donated. You can also add $10 to your donation to pick a song I have to add to my playlist. For example, a $60 donation would get a 10km run dedicated to you, plus one song you choose will be added to my playlist.
