The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s Run for the Cure is coming up September 30th and a group of local bloggers has created a team to support the cause.
Nicole Ludwig from the blog Resolving Timeline Issues said that the team was an “accidental happening” last year since she signed up for personal reasons and found that friends and fellow bloggers (like Alexis of wavethestick.com) wanted to join her.
“Both my mother and mother-in-law are breast cancer survivors. This means that my daughter, Shannon, has an elevated chance of developing breast cancer. I dream of a world for her where there is a cure, and better yet, prevention,” Nicole told me by email. “Eventually, I think it would be great if we could have a cross-country team – can you imagine bloggers all across Canada running for boobies?”
Everyone is welcome to join Nicole’s team, called Bloggers for Boobies, on this 5km run or 1km walk around False Creek in Vancouver. Last year’s members included:
- Nicole Ludwig @Nicole013
- Alexis Hinde @alexishinde
- Amber Strocel @amberstrocel
- Amanda @lilahbility
- Naomi @monkeemama
