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.
Last year I turned 40 - a victory! I've survived cancer, I've supported loved ones through it and I've lost some on the way. I want to see cancer defeated for good. That's why I'm committing to break a sweat and fundraise to improve the outcome for people facing this disease across the province. I belive, we can 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.
It's June 1 - which means Workout is officially finished.
Over the past month I've done 23 workouts, gone kayaking and walked a HUGE number of steps. I've had the pleasure of 4 different workout buddies. I've sweated and jumped and lifted, and even face-planted.
And, most importantly - you've given! Your donations currently total $930!!!!!!
This money will have a direct impact on the lives of people in BC living with cancer. It will go towards research into new treatments, new diagnostic tools, new prevention strategies; it will fund new equipment and access to care for people even in the remotest regions of the province.
Thank you, to every one of you who has given, like my posts, shared, encouraged me - together we've made real difference.

Upping the ante
On the weekend I set a challenge - if I received $50 in donations, I would try to convince Steve to workout with me.
Well - in 24 hours I got $100 in donations! You guys really wanted to see Steve get sweaty!
I hope you enjoyed the video of our dual workout, it was fun to do.
With the donations continuing to come in, I've decided to up my goal. There's still 8 days left, so let's see if I can reach $600 - are you in?

Thank you wonderful friends - through your generosity I have smashed my goal of $300! (a couple of donations are not showing yet, as I received them through Facebook...)
I hope you have been enjoying my super-speedy workout videos on Instagram ;)
Having reached my goal, I'm not giving up. I want to see just how far I can reach. $400? $500? $600? Who knows! There's still 2 weeks to go, and I've plenty of steam left in me.
Together we CAN beat cancer!
