Team More Than a Handful 2012
I've reached my fundraising target - Thank you!!
7 years cancer free and counting......!
My team and I signed up for the 2014 walk and are eager to get started albeit a little late. I cannot believe it was 2006 when I was diagnosed with cancer - it seems a lifetime away!
Our team this year consists of Moe, my sisters Kim and Cori and my friend Kim along with myself. Team More Than a Handful has been involved in the walk now eight years. That means I've walked more than 350 kilometres over the years. We walked in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 201, 2013 and will be walking in 2043. In 2009, we worked as Crew which was a lot of fun and hard work, however, not as satisfying as walking.
Through our training over the years and during the walk that special weekend each September, our team has shared one of the most amazing experiences in our life time. We laughed, we cried, we ached all over and yet we had a fantastic time and signed up again!! What were we thinking? Well, I will tell you - it is the hope that you can and will make a difference. It is that feeling you are doing something right in life. Cancer has affected so many people that we all know and love - neighbours, friends and family - why wouldn't you support them! The walk is an emotional rollercoaster worth riding. A moment none of us will forget....even with the aches and pains!
I will be walking with a very dear friend in mind who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. I hope you will support me once again this year for me and for all those friends and family we know who were diagnosed with cancer.
