In 2012, I participated in my first charity run, the 5K CIBC Run for a Cure event and raised $505.
In 2013, I took part in two 10k runs. The first was the Sportinglife 10K for Camp Oochigeas. Here, my team and I have raised $1163 for kids with cancer to go to camp (more details here). The second was The Terry Fox Run for The Terry Fox Foundation. Here, our team raised $335 (more details on the original post here & the completed run here). I also completed 4 other 5k Races, 2 of which included fundraising efforts as well.
I will not tally each year up as I believe this will be an effort for the rest of my life and should not be logging it like this. I do want to keep the first two years on here to remind me where I started and how far I’ve come.
I am always fundraising for the Canadian Breast Cancer Society; I am asking kindly for your donations for the breasts you love, breasts you loved, and breasts you will love in the future. I am also fundraising for The Terry Fox Foundation to outrun cancer, please make a donation to either charities. Any amount is truly appreciated.
I am running for a cause and starting to run for myself. I began running for a cure, continued to run for fun, and now I run for a cause. I will continue to run for any cause I see fit and can help. Running has been a motivational means to get active and healthy for myself but to also give back. The running community is more than I could have ever imaged it to be. It’s definitely something you don’t want to miss out on in this lifetime.
I am constantly planning out my next journey and adventure.
So, if you have accidentally stumbled across my site, please, check the top right of this page to see if you can make a small donation to the charity I am featuring and raising awareness for or to any charity of your choice; whether you donate to support me or make a general donation to make dreams happen, I truly appreciate your generosity.
So a bit about me? Well, I am not very athletic now and have definitely let myself slide. Through the freshmen years in University and the post grad life of working in an office, I have really put on extra pounds and it has set me back in being healthy and active. I am determined to get back to a healthy lifestyle, get strong, and get comfortable in my own skin!
