I am participating in Zombie Thrill Run 2015 to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society - and defeat zombies!
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 31st 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 2015, 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. For more information on the work of the Society in the fight against breast cancer, go to cancer.ca
My Zombie Thrill Run 2015 will be in Loving Memory of Jaclyn Van Esbroeck. Jaclyn lost her battle with breast cancer just a few weeks ago. She was a fighter to the end. Her courage and strength was incredible. She was 34 and leaves behind a 3 yr old daughter, a 1 yr old son, her husband and many loving family and friends. She wanted everyone to participate in the Zombie Thrill Run and raise much needed funds to fight this horrible disease.
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!
