This is the year that I turned 40. It has always been a personal goal to run a Half Marathon and this year seemed to be the one to do. While looking around for an event to commit to, a close personal friend was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I decided to sign up for the Mississauga Half Marathon to try and raise money for this and other devastating cancers, to get fitter and heart healthy and because I'm grateful that I have the ability to do this.
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.
If you could consider sparing a little money to help me reach my fundraising goal I would be very grateful. 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!
