I am taking the Challenge - CancerCare Manitoba's Challenge for Life – for my momma and so many loved ones affected by cancer.
This is for my mom Pearl who has terminal breast cancer, for my aunts and family that have battled and for those that battled fiercely but we lost: for Willie Fast in jr high, Sari Sinasky in Gr 12, for my colleague Sherri Purchase, for Rhonda's dad, for Megan's parents, for Carter Holdsworth, for Reynold Genier, for Joanne Thomson, for Jed Appelle, for Irene Williamson and my loving Grandma Mary Worona. Sadly there are many others. And also for our future: my children, future grandchildren and myself.
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!
For the Challenge For Life August 5-17, 2021 I will be walking my 20km. While observing social distancing, we will have fun while changing the course of cancer in our province.
