London: Together for Bev - CIBC Run for the Cure

London

Together for Bev

On August 23, 2021 we lost our beautiful Mother, Wife, Aunt, Sister, Daughter and Friend, Bev Yates, to metastatic breast cancer. People refer to coping with cancer as a 'fight' or 'battle', but surely if the fight was fair she no doubt would have won. There is truly no one stronger, more positive and determined than her. 

Bev spent her life dedicated to helping others, and of course loved her fitness! She was on her spin bike, hiking and walking her dog right up until her final days. She has done Run for the Cure many times, even leading the opening ceremony speech and warmup in a previous year. This run therefore seemed like the perfect way to honour her life - running/walking and getting moving to help those facing breast cancer in the future. 

Bev received incredible care and support from the London Regional Cancer Clinic and her palliative care team, but ultimately there is still no cure for this disease. We want to do what we can to ensure the world doesn't lose any more bright lights like Bev.

Please consider joining our team or donating to support this amazing cause. 

Thank you in advance for your support.
