I am participating in Zombie Thrill Run 2015 to support a wonderful, brave woman that I've had the pleasure of knowing for the past 5 years. Jaclyn, like myself is a mother. She has a beautiful little 3 year old girl and a sweet little one year old boy. The doctors say she will not see them grow up. They tell her she has 2 months to fit in a lifetime with them. I am absolutely heartbroken for Jaclyn and her family and am running to help raise funds to cure this horrible disease. I am also running because Jaclyn and I had talked about doing triathelons together after having our babies. Well Jaclyn, this is just the first step, and I'll be moving on to triathelons as well, and fundraising with each one I do.
The Zombie Thrill Run is a 2k fun run/walk, a 5k timed walk/run and a 10k timed run. It will take place on the streets of Pembroke Ontario October 26 starting from the Best Western Pembroke Fitness Centre on International Drive. The money raised from this event will help fund leading edge breast cancer research. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women and is the second leading cause of death from cancer in Canadian women. It is estimated that in 2014, 24,400 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 5,000 women will die from it. The Canadian Cancer is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in Canada and is leading the way in life-saving breast cancer research.

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!
