Help me (Nancy) raise funds to Stand up to Cancer
After much thought and consideration, i have decided once again to participate in the 5k Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend this upcoming weekend and using this opportunity to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society. You may have noticed, that i did not say RUN or JOG, but rather participate and with good reason.
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.
As many of you may know, cancer has had fatal consequences to numerous close members of my family (mom, step-mom, grandmother, sister-n-law, and cousin) and there are numerous of my friends, and colleagues who have also had their lives impacted by cancer and are fighting and or supporttung their family members battle cancer. This is why this is so personal to me. 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.
While i wont be setting any personal best records this time around given my own recent health struggles, i will put forth my best to complete the race. So please help me, help others.
Thanks for your support!
