I am running the Mississauga Half Marathon this year. This will be my second time running this race & I'm excited to be up to something bigger than myself. Last year I was all about self-empowering and getting through that half marathon primarily focused on me & my goal!
This year I'm raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society for my run! I will be inspired by the people in my life who have fought this battle, are currently fighting it and those who have been taken from us as a result of cancer. With each kilometer I run, I will think about those who have been affected it and any time I feel like stopping or giving up, I will remind myself that I can do this and that I'm doing it for others.
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs. With your donations, if you want to include a name of someone you personally know who has fought this battle, please do and I will carry their name with me through the 21km.
Thanks for your support!
