This May I’m participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer to get moving and support BC Cancer patients! I'm joining others across the province to move, no matter where we are, every single day of the month. Whether you choose to pump weights or stretch some bands, do some body-weight workouts, breathe deep in yoga, have a dance party or walk your dog.
One in two British Columbians are affected by cancer. That's why I've committed to move and raise funds for patients, survivors and those we've lost. This challenge is more than exercise, it's about a community who believes we can make an impact, even from our homes. This fundraiser is even more important this year as those with cancer are at high risk of complications from Covid-19. Quarantine and Social Distancing is hard on everyone's mental health. Regular exercise can have a significant positive impact on mental health. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts your overall mood. And you don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to reap the benefits. Even modest amounts of exercise can make a difference. No matter your age or fitness level, you can learn to use exercise as a powerful tool to feel better.
So, as I get ready to sweat my way through May for every individual who cannot, please show your support by making a donation today.
