2013 will mark my second year participating in the Weekend To End Women's Cancers- Participate seems like such a shallow word for the actual experience I had while walking last year.  I initially joined because I wanted to support my company Shoppers Drug Mart and I wanted to walk with my fellow co-workers to show my support for all those women, mothers, daughters, sisters, friends who are battling for their lives or for whom have lost their fight to Cancer.

 

What I experienced during the walk was beyond any words that I might be able to capture to express how this day affected me.  It was a cold and rainy day but you would never have known that from the energy inside the Direct Energy Centre the morning before the walk started- it truly was electric with thousands of people together to help raise money to fight this battle. 

 

I didn't know what to expect - honestly I was nervous because I wasn't sure I could actually do this- really could I walk over 30K in one day??? Well I did and I did so with energy, enthusiasm and big smile on my face the whole time I must admit at times my walking turned to dancing (not a pretty sight)!  I walked with Friends in the rain soaking wet for most of the day but that didn't matter one bit what mattered was the reason for the walk.  The most amazing part that I could never had imagined was the support from the people on the streets who cheered as we walked past, the families who offered food and drinks and signs of support along the way- the volunteers and other walkers who made the day all worth it!  It was endless- at every turn there were people there to cheer and support every single walker!  It truly was one of the most amazing feelings I had ever felt and it lasted throughout the whole day- rain and shine!!!

 

I started my walk at 8:30 am apprehensive and a bit intimidated about what was ahead.  I finished at 3:30 with a heart full of gratitude and pride!

 

I walked for all women who are battling cancer but especially for my "sister"- who continues to fight this disease and who so far is beating the odds stacked against her!

 

Please support me in my walk this year every little bit helps- I am so looking forward to joining the thousands who will make a difference in this fight!
