I am taking the Challenge – CancerCare Manitoba Foundation's 16th annual Challenge for Life – because I can!
This year marks my 11th consecutive year participating in the Challenge for Life! My first year I did it to honour the 25th anniversary of my mom's passing. Over the years I have continued to walk and raise money because, sadly, more people I know and love have been diagnosed. I have always felt that participating in the Challenge for Life is something that I can do to help make a difference, a way of taking away that feeling of helplessness and taking back a sense of power over this terrible disease.
Being a participant means I am committed to improve my overall health and reduce my own risk of cancer. I have also committed to raise at least $250 in the fight against cancer to help support cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, research and education at CancerCare Manitoba for all Manitobans with cancer.
CancerCare Manitoba is dedicated to excellence in care, providing the latest treatments available for those diagnosed and living with cancer and blood disorders and improving cancer outcomes for all Manitobans.
Join me in the Challenge or support me with a donation! Together, we can change the course of cancer in Manitoba.
