This May I’ll be participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer in honour of my cousin Carter who passed away at the age of 12 from an osteosarcoma on March 16. I have a very tight-knit family so Carter was more like my little brother than just my cousin. He was an incredibly optimistic, courageous young kid and I am forever better for having known him for his short twelve years.
Workout to Conquer Cancer has been a difficult yet motivating coping mechanism for my family. What better way to honour an athletic, determined young boy like Carter than by pledging to be physically active every day in May while fundraising for a cure? In that spirit, I have created a team, In Carter's Honour, and I would be beyond grateful if you would consider donating to my fundraising page. Even better, I would love to have you join my team! The more the merrier, regardless of how far into the May-long challenge we are.
