Please support the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Charity Challenge

Please support the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Charity Challenge

On October 16, 2011, I will be participating in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5k Run / Walk while raising funds for Wellspring Cancer Support Centre by pledging me.

Let me tell you about Wellspring. After a few months of living with my diagnosis and sharing with few people, I started to feel anxious and isolated. I reached out to Wellspring and became inspired as I met caring staff, dedicated and cheerful volunteers, and other people (survivors and their supporters) experiencing cancer. Thanks to Wellspring programs, I felt less isolated and more informed, healthier, and empowered about my cancer journey. Wellspring has even begun programs for young adults living with cancer. The kind of psychosocial support that Wellspring provides is a critical component of the cancer healing journey along with the other forms of conventional treatment (e.g., surgery, radiation, medical). Thanks to Wellspring's Cancer Exercise program, I have gained enough strength and confidence to begin running again. I will be running a 5k, my first event post-cancer diagnosis!

My goal is to presently raise $ 300 for Wellspring. Please help me to reach this goal.

All pledges will receive an official tax receipt (either electronic or in the mail.
