BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: May 24, 2014
Too many of our loved ones have been confronted with the hardships of a cancer diagnosis. As we enter a new decade of our lives, we hope to validate our contribution to this world by dedicating our time and effort to a cause dear to us.
On May 24th, we plan on completing the XTRAIL 11.8 km race in Mont Sutton. According to the event description, we will have to "navigate through roots, rocks, mud, streams, and MOOSES!" :)
For the next 2 months, regardless of the unpredictable Montreal weather and our busy school schedules, we intend on continuing our training for this event.
We hope to succeed in not only a physical feat beyond our normal capabilities, but also in a mental exercise of discipline and endurance.
We have chosen to donate to the StandUp2Cancer Foundation through which 100% of our public funding will go to cancer research.
We ask you to consider contributing to this cause and keeping us in your thoughts during the next two months.
On the day of the race, we will be sporting t-shirts with the names of those we know who have or are battling cancer.This will serve as a reminder to fight for those whose courage has greatly inspired us. Please contact us if there is someone you would like for us to keep in mind.
We thank you in advance for your support as we take on the great North and its wild mooses!
