Legging It For Linda - fundraising page!
Hi everyone. This team page has been set up in honour of Linda Kavitch. Linda was a 27 year veteran of the Winnipeg Police Service and bravely fought stage 3 and stage 4 breats cancer for over 5 years. Her battle ended this past year on Dec 4, 2021 at the age of 51. She was a wife, mother of 2, daugher, and friend to so many. The Winnipeg Police Half Marathon is Sunday May 1st this year. Linda loved doing this race because of the great cause and the amazing people involved. In different years she ran the half marathon, relay, and even ran the 5-k just a few months after chemo which was quite a feat. It turned into an annual event and run for the family. To carry on the tradition, Linda's husband Kevin will be running the relay with her son Tyler (20) while Mark (18) is going to run the full half marathon (his first ever).
In honour of Linda we set up ths donation page as part of the half marathon with proceeds going to fight breast cancer. We set a fundraising target of $1848 (her badge #) It's time we end cancer which has impacted so many of our families.
While we each may have our own reason for joining the fight against cancer, we are all united in our belief that we can make a difference. And your support will too!
When you make a donation to our team or to any of the passionate team members, you are providing hope to thousands of people affected by cancer. Your generosity will fund innovative research, provide vital support services to cancer patients and help change lives.
Please donate online today and help our team reach our goal.
