“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” — Vincent van Gogh. I can’t believe it’s been over a year since the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. How time flies! Our entire team has stayed busy with old and new involvements. An as I said in an earlier blog – It is our responsibility to give back.
Here are some of the things I support, believe in and give my time to. Get involved!
Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada – Most of you know my father passed away from a brain tumour a few years ago. And I am finally able to get involved and help raise awareness as their 2011 Spokesperson. And I am going to run in two of their Spring Sprint events, May 29th in Vancouver and June 12th in Calgary. So once the snow leaves the city of Calgary, I am going to dust off my dog, Hugo and both of us are going to start running again!
This year there are 21 Spring Sprint events in eight provinces across Canada, each event is driven by volunteers.
The goal this year is to raise $1.5 million for education, information, and support for the estimated 55,000 Canadians affected by brain tumours. Donations also fund research into the cause and better treatments for brain tumours. Visit www.springsprint.ca.
