Welcome to our team page, KK's Knockouts!
This May we're participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer to get moving and support BC Cancer patients. In particular, this year we are participating in honour of our dear friend, Karim Kurji (otherwise known as, KK) who we lost to a battle with cancer in 2021.
Karim was full of life and thoroughly loved his life. He had a wicked sense of humor, managed to charm everyone, was nothing less than a complete style icon and was deeply loved. In January 2020, Karim was diagnosed with a rare form of Multiple Myeloma after going to the hospital for backpain. Karim, his family, and his friends were immediately thrown into a journey that was never expected. He and his family battled through chemotherapy, radiation, scans, blood transfusions, tests, biopsies, and more, but unfortuantely, we lost Karim to his battle with cancer in March 2021. That is why, we want to contribute to and support BC Cancer in their research to discover more treatments and interventions, in the hopes that we can prevent other families and individuals in having to experience this journey.
KK is missed dearly by his children, wife, sister, family, and friends, but in memory of his fun-loving, giving, caring, and amazing personality, we as a team are dedicating our time, effort, and energy towards moving every day in the month of May to raise awareness and funds to support everyone who has been impacted by cancer.
This challenge is more than exercise, it's about joining a community who know that we can make an impact for those we love and have loved.
Whether we run, walk, stretch or squat, every move we make and dollar we raise will be in support of the 77,000 people facing cancer this year across British Columbia.
So, as we get ready to sweat our way through May, please show your support by making a donation to our team today.
Consider moving with us, and join our team! We can work out and fundraise together for this very important cause.
