I will be participating in the Run for the Cure October 1st in downtown Vancouver. Last year it was on a special day… not only was it my first year doing the run and raising money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, but shortly thereafter I drove out to the airport to pick up my then soon-to-be-husband upon his arrival in Vancouver. This year, he’ll be joining me on the run.

If you would like to sponsor me, you can visit the Run for the Cure website [sponsor a runner] and enter my name: Rebecca Bollwitt and the location: Vancouver. We’re going to be running alongside my family’s church group – The God Squad – so don’t let the team name throw you off :p Last year we had the highest donations of any community group and were the only church group. By sponsoring/donating, not only will you help me raise the goal amount of $150, you will receive a tax receipt AND all funds go toward the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

This is something that has affected all of us at some point in our lives. If you are unable to sponsor my run or donate that’s okay, encouraging words are also accepted in blog-comment-form because well, it IS a 5km run and I haven’t done any training since last spring. Thanks 🙂

This year, an estimated 22,300 Canadian women and 160 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer. We know research is making a difference. Lives are being saved through earlier detection, and more effective treatments are improving the quality of life for those who receive this devastating diagnosis.

I am one of 170,000 participants who will all be walking or running on Sunday, October 1st and I need your support. Donating online is quick, easy and secure! You can pay by credit card and within 30 minutes, you will receive a tax receipt for any donation that has been successfully received. Your donation will be added to the critical funds raised by the Run, and will be directed towards research, education and awareness programs.
