This post is a couple of weeks late, however I wanted to Thank Everyone for their support and donations for the “Sears Great Canadian Run to End Childhood Cancer” which took place on September 21, 2013.  I joined up with the LP Runners and together we were able to raise a total of $14,414.10!!!!  We are all so very grateful to all of our family and friends who supported us with donations along with the many emails, texts and phone calls to wish us well on the journey from Bolton to Blue Mountain.  Despite the pouring rain, it was an amazing and inspiring day.  Luckily, the last 30 minutes or so before we got up to Blue Mountain the sun came out and we had a wonderful finish.

 

I have attached some photos from the day including our brave Nicolas and his supportive sister Sofia who were at the finish line and ran the last 100 meters with us, along with my two kids (Madison and Joshua) and of course Nicoloas’ mom and dad and grandparents were also there to cheer us on. I have to give a shout out to Grandma who ordered us all T-shirts that read “The Little Lion”, “The Little Lion’s Sister”, The Little Lions Aunt”, which of course is the nickname given to Nicolas as he bravely fought Cancer.

 

I would also like to mention we also had another Childhood Cancer survivor run with us on September 21.  Victoria who underwent treatment at Siick Kids for Lymphoma at the age of 16. She is a 3 year survivor and is currently a student at the University of Toronto.  Unfortunately, she had a terrible knee injury for the race but still managed to hobble out a 3 KM leg with her dad Don.  It was great to meet Victoria and hear her story and share in this experience with such great people, and of course raise money to #EndKidsCancer!

 

As we are just getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving weekend, I want to wish you all Health, Love and Happiness. I know we have so much to be thankful for and plan on having some much needed family time this weekend.
