Dear friends,

In 2005 I participated in the first Weekend to End Breast Cancer walk and really appreciated the dedication and commitment of all the participants. I have participated in the Ride to Conquer Cancer since then but have decided to return to the Weekend Walk as my research is focused specifically on breast cancer. I am currently conducting the Breast Cancer and Exercise Trial in Alberta (BETA Trial) that is funded by an operating grant from the Alberta Cancer Foundation. We have nearly enrolled our target sample of 400 women aged 50-74 who are undertaking a year-long aerobic exercise program in Edmonton and Calgary. These participants are either exercising for 150 or 300 minutes per week. We are interested in understanding how exercise reduces breast cancer risk and what dose of exercise is needed to reduce this risk. I have an amazing team of study coordinators and exercise trainers working with me on this study. Our participants are fantastic and have given willingly to help us advance our scientific understanding on how we can reduce breast cancer risk. All of this research would not have been possible here in Alberta without these kinds of fundraisers. So, I am deeply committed to this type of fundraising and will help raise the funds that we need to continue our research.

I will be walking on July 21-22 for 60 kilometres through different neighbourhoods in Calgary alongside many others who have many motives for assuming this physical and mental challenge. We are all united, though, in our commitment to make a difference with respect to breast cancer.

I would greatly appreciate your support and thank you, in advance, for considering this worthwhile cause.

Thank you,
