Welcome to my fundraising page!
I am a Cancer Fighter. I am taking action to change the future of this disease for my friends, family and Canadians nationwide. I am raising awareness and funds for the fight against cancer. I hope I can count on your support!
Since 2015, my neighbor and friend Lauren Reynolds and I have been participating in the annual Swim for the Cure to help raise money to combat breast cancer. We started out small only completing the last 1 kilometer (I was 11 and Lauren was 14 so to us that one kilometer was a huge stretch as we'd only swam around the island in front of our cottages at that point). From there on out, we slowly worked our way up to completing more of the 12.8 km but unfortunately our endeavors were put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, the Swim is back for what is technically it's 20th year and due to the pandemic, the Swim will be mostly remote as we will be swimming the 12.8 km individually over the course of the month of August. So far, I've begun my goal to reach the full 12.8 and am looking forward to raising money with my team to help contribute to breast cancer research as no matter how much we raise: every bit helps to save lives.
I swim for my godmother who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and who also recently beat it. I also swim for the thousands who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
Thank you so much for your generosity!
