4 days to go until the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Run for the Cure
. John and I will be running [604
] and I’m still about 70 bucks short of my fundraising goal. If the cause appeals to you, you want to show some support, get a nice tax receipt and know you’re benefitting Breast Cancer Research – click on the button in my sidebar
Enter my name (Rebecca Bollwitt) and race location (Vancouver). Your info is not revealed to me, except your donation amount. It’s all done securely right on the Run for the Cure website and you’ll receive instant warm fuzzies.
I’ll have pics up from the run & I’m trying to get John to wear my pink headband but I dunno if he will… maybe if I reach my fundraising goal I can get him to do something silly. A woman in our group will shave her hair (and donate to charity) if we get $10,000 combined.
If you are able to help the cause, it would be greatly appreciated. If not, you’re still a nice person and I will not hate you :p And no, I haven’t done ANY training for the 5km run so it should be interesting.
Spoiled boy I have. Thursday night, Snow Patrol. Friday night, dinner at parents. Saturday night, dinner with friends. Sunday night, Canucks game. Somewhere in there, I got John a couple presents, a hair cut, and dyed my hair blond. We just got home from the game (which we won in a shootout, 4-3). It was a great time, even met up with JJ from the Canucks Hockey Blog and he bought John a birthday beer.
We just got home and noticed John’s pal, and our wedding DJ, Don had sent him a message saying that tonight on his radio show (d-contextualized on WYEP in Pittsburg) he will dedicate a bunch of songs to him. Freaking sweet!
We’re now dancing around the apartment (me, in my new Canucks shirt I got for 14 bucks at the Authentix sale) and singing along to the tunes Don is playing. He just ran a couple songs for John and now we’re making some requests – next up, They Might be Giants and some Matthew Good. Don said he listened to the Matt Good podcast we did a lil while ago – said it even got him a little choked up hehe. We’re listening over the web so it’s a bit delayed but I think we’re going to try and Skype him in a minute and say hi.
What an awesome end to the weekend. I’m pretty sure John had a good time – not only marking his first birthday in Canada but also the 1 year mark since he first “landed” in Vancouver. Here’s to many many more good times.
