On June 9 th I will once again be lacing up my runners and taking the Challenge at the 11th anniversary of CancerCare Manitoba's Challenge for Life!
Challenge for Life is a powerful annual event. Every year hundreds of Manitobans come together to raise serious funds for a serious cause and enjoy a 20 KM walk through some of Winnipeg's most beautiful and historic neighbourhoods
Since its inception in 2008, nearly $10 million has been raised. With the generous support that I have received from Family and Friends I have raised over $68,000.00 for CancerCare Manitoba.
This year I have committed to raising $500 for CancerCare Manitoba but have set my personal goal this year to raise $5000.00. All proceeds stay in Manitoba to support prevention, early detection, state of the art research, world class treatment and patient support at CancerCare . We are very fortunate to have CancerCare Manitoba and the many doctors here in Manitoba to research and treat this disease. We are also very fortunate to have people like you that support the many fundraising events that help fund the programs offered by CancerCare Manitoba.
This year I dedicate my walk to each any every person and their families who have been touched by this horrible disease.
I will walk in memory of my mom and my dear friend Jenny who lost their fight to this horrible disease
I will walk for those currently fighting this disease
I will walk for my cousin Nance and others who have fought and won their battle
I will walk for a future without Cancer
I thank you for your support and hope that you will share this incredible journey by supporting me in my fundraising efforts. This walk is a journey that is much easier than the journey those with cancer are faced with every day.
I sincerely appreciate all of your support, any amount helps, and all donations of $15 or more are tax deductible.

Together we can do this …. One step at a Time we will make a difference –
Because we Can
Thank you for your consideration
