The sun was shining and it was a brisk day. We met our team, and immediately the event became emotional. One of my team members found out a family member was diagnosed the day before the run with breast cancer. We hugged and shared tears. Women were coming up to new friends and showing such empathy and support. It was so touching. The event impressed the importance of coming together to make a difference. I was proud my daughter walked with my friends to see first hand, the power of community.
I want to thank my team Nancy, Sandy and Family, Arden for taking time out on your Sunday. I want to thank our donors who fundraised from all over the map, proving it doesn’t matter where you live. If you want to make a difference - YOU CAN.
There were over 127,000 participants and the day raised over and $25 million raised for innovative breast cancer research, health education, and advocacy programs across Canada. Thank you.
