Welcome to team No Hairs, No Cares!
This spring our General Manager, Caleigh Christie, was diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer. Over the past few months she has been receiving several treatments including a lumpectomy and chemotherapy. Yesterday was her 4th and FINAL round of chemo! Woo woo! The journey has been a roller coaster of challenges, both emotional and physical. Caleigh is so grateful for all the support she has received from her family, friends, community, and especially the amazing team at Cancer Caner Manitoba.
We'd like to help make sure that current and future cancer patients continue to receive the great care that Caleigh has. Today we signed up for the Cancer Care Challenge for Life fundraiser where all proceeds stay within the province. My team and I, team “No hairs, no cares!” Will be riding our bikes 20 km on the Great Trail around the west end of Falcon Lake on August 18th.
Our goal is to raise $2500 dollars by August 20th in support of Cancer Care Manitoba. Our team sponsor, Falcon Trails Resort, will match all donations made to our team up to a maximum of $1250.
