After a couple of setbacks I am back to training with the time I have left.  This has been one of the roughest trainings I have ever gone through.  See more

THE STORY:

     “I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.”
– Charles de Lint

     Once in a while people come into our lives that make us realize all the precious moments in life. My family and I had the amazing luck, and privilege, of meeting the people behind the TargetCancer foundation, and instantly felt a connection with them. This wonderful organization helps fund and support the research of rare cancers.  

     Ever since our first encounter, my family and I have always said that if there was a way that we could contribute to the TargetCancer cause we would jump, or run, at the chance. 

     This year, I am super excited to announce that I will have the privilege to run as part of the TargetCancer team in the 2017 Boston Marathon.  I am going to do 'my bit'!

    No, I have never run a marathon before.  Yes, I am a little bit nervous. Okay that's a lie, I'm very nervous! But I know that my determination will be fuelled  by the memories of all of the friends and family that myself, and my family, have lost over the years to this ever threatening disease.  

    So for all of those that never give up hope, and who believe we can make a difference and find a cure, help me on this run to the finish line. I take on this challenge, and will appreciate your support!
