Ride for Refuge, CIBC Run for the Cure and Mission Possible

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since I’ve been on here but thought I’d do a bit of an update on what I’m going to be working on for the next couple of months.

I’m on the organizing committees for both Ottawa Mission teams (Ride for Refuge and Mission Possible). I will be participating in these events as well as being a participant in the CIBC Run for the Cure.

Here’s a little more information about each:

2013-10-05 08.50.05-1Ride for Refuge

On October 4th, I’ll be joining thousands of Canadians riding for charities serving the displaced, vulnerable and exploited. Riding a bike can seem like a small thing, but the impact is huge — the funds I collect will change lives through the organization I’m supporting. So please, give generously, and remember me on RIDE day as I huff and puff my way to the finish line. Knowing you’re supporting me will be a great encouragement!

Saturday, October 4th

Fundraising goal of $250 for the Ottawa Mission.

I’m participating in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure on Sunday, October 5 because breast cancer is a cause that is very important to me. When I think about the estimated over 23,000 women and men who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in Canada, it feels good to know I’m doing something to change those statistics through my participation, fundraising and by learning more about breast cancer.You can make a difference too! With your support, the Foundation will continue funding breast cancer research, education, awareness, advocacy and health promotion initiatives across the country, aimed to significantly reduce the burden of breast cancer in Canada. To learn more about the work the Foundation is funding, visit http://www.cbcf.org. Every donation counts. Your continued dedication moves the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation closer to achieving its vision of creating a future without breast cancer.
