Please support my journey!

First I would like to thank those that donated, supported and encouraged me last year, my first year walking.  With your help, I was able to raise $1,470 and the SDM team collected more than $650K.  In total, the weekend collected over $10M to help the fight against cancers, specifically those affecting women.  WOW!

Last year was an amazing experience, aside from the torrential downpours, huge puddles and muddy fields.  This year I originally committed to walk for one day, but my friend and colleague has encouraged me to walk both days - a total of 60km.

My commitment is based on the realization that we each need to do our part in this fight. I can walk. I can raise funds to benefit The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret, a leader in the fight against all women's cancers. I can and choose to be a part of this movement to save lives.  It is also personal, as one of my good friends and several colleagues at work were diagnosed with cancer last year.  They have all had surgery and have a positive outlook for the future.  I also learned from several of my sponsors last year that they too have been touched by cancer in some way.

My hope is that a cure for one form of cancer will lead to a cure for all. I've agreed to raise a minimum of $2,000 for the 2013 campaign and would appreciate your consideration to help me reach my goal. Use the link at the top of this page - and please take the time to contribute to this very worthy cause, every dollar counts! Tax receipts will be issued for donations exceeding $10. 

Be a part of my very personal journey - by giving, by walking with me, or simply by sharing my story with your circle of influence! Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Support me in 2013.
