For the Love of Pink!
I am doing my first charity run in a very long time. On Sunday, October 4th, I will be at the Toronto run site for the CIBC Run for the Cure, to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. I am very excited, and can't wait. I am part of the Booty Camp Fitness women's team. I have sponsored many friends in the past, but never physically took part. I am told that this will be a wonderfully emotional event for all participants.
For those of you not familiar with the event, this will be a 5K run or 1K walk at several locations across Canada. I just want to thank all of my generous sponsors for helping me to reach my fundraising goal. I plan to do this run again next year and as often as I am able to in the coming years. I have not been directly touched by breast cancer, but I have friends who have. I will be running for their mothers, sisters, daughters and wives that have lost the battle. But I will also be running for the survivors in the hopes that they will continue to overcome the disease and live long, happy lives.
