After a couple year hiatus I am once again be taking the 20K challenge (The CancerCare Manitoba 2019 Challenge for Life 2.0 12th Annual “Made-in-Manitoba” event).
CancerCare Manitoba is the provincially mandated cancer agency for all of Manitoba, charged with the responsibility for cancer prevention, detection, treatment, research and education. CancerCare Manitoba is dedicated to excellence in cancer care, to enhancing the quality of life for those diagnosed and living with cancer and blood disorders and to improving the control of cancer for all Manitobans. They are committed to continuous learning and improvement through world-class research.
I take pride in the opportunity I have to reduce my own risk of cancer, as well as a shot at enhancing our community’s chance at a cancer free life. After my family’s very somber experience with rapid progression kidney cancer this past summer, I realize now more than ever that every effort truly counts. This is why I’ve chosen to get back on the track, lace up putting my best foot forward. Cancer affects & often destroys the lives of so many, patients & family members alike. Let’s help our community together; today’s research can become the breakthroughs we need for tomorrow!
At this time, I would like to ask the help of anyone willing to aid me in meeting/supassing my donation goals towards this year’s challenge. Proceeds from the event stay right here in Manitoba to support prevention, early detection, state of the art treatment, world class research and patient support at CancerCare Manitoba.
