This May I’ll be participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer presented by RYU Apparel, where I’ll be joining hundreds of others across the province as we get moving every single day of the month in support of cancer research and enhancements to care at BC Cancer.
One in two British Columbians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. I've committed to break a sweat and fundraise to improve the outcome for people facing this disease across the province. With your support, we will make a significant contribution to the world-class research conducted by the clinicians and scientists at BC Cancer. Their work is providing exciting new evidence that is changing the way cancer is prevented, detected and treated.
So, as I lace up my runners, fill up my water bottle and get ready to sweat my way through May, please show your support by making a donation today.
I also want to add that there are three main reasons I am doing this. The first is that so many of my friends and family have been affected by cancer in one way or another. The second is that I want to challenge myself and hold myself accountable for working out. And the third is to push myself out of my comfort zone. I will be logging what I am doing every day and hopefully this will inspire you to be active as well.
Thank you for your support Sooke!!! From the sales of signs I made, I was able to donate 300.00 towards this fundraising event.
