I am taking the Challenge - CancerCare Manitoba's Challenge for Life – because I can!
The Klawd hoppers have been walking the walk since inception of the challenge for life. We have walked for many people over the years. We started the walk in honor of our mom Linda, and have added Melody, Michalya and my dad Bill. All in all we have raised over 21000.00 !!!!
This years walk hits especially close to home. My husband, my love Garth, was diagnosed with solitary plasmacytoma a week before Christmas. No words can describe the sadness of that news. It's definitely been a ride !!!! This year we walk in his honor !!!
By participating in this “Made-in-Manitoba” event I am committed to taking steps to improve my overall health and reduce my own risk of cancer. I am also committed to raising at least $250 to support CancerCare Manitoba and all those in need.
Join me in the Challenge – by registering yourself and choosing your workout, to reach 200 minutes of fitness or 20km, or by supporting me with a donation. We'll do it together.... because we can!
The Challenge for Life is completely virtual so I am designing my own challenge and choosing to “move” from August 5-17, 2021. While observing social distancing, we will have fun while changing the course of cancer in our province.
