True to my heart and the cause I've chosen to participate in each year is the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. This will be my 2nd year as Team Captain of "Boobies United", last year was in Toronto. It's truly a heart-warming but highly emotional experience that I think everyone should try at least once. Not only is it a relaxed run/walk event, it is so much fun to be surrounded by a sea of pink feather boas and pink bras!
To start my fundraising early, I hosted a small private Potluck for the Cure at my home with my close family and friends. Ladies indulged in relaxing spa services provided by Genesis Mobile Spa of Ottawa. Our Stella & Dot consultant, Amy Mclean, showed some beautiful jewellery to spoil ourselves, and we had the pleasure of trying wonderful, delicious dishes - shared amongst fabulous ladies with tickles and giggles. AND we had a gift prize and swag bag for each person to take home.
All in all it was a fantastic time and all for a great cause. I even managed to recruit some walkers to join my team!
If weddings and events weren't enough, I am also the Promotions Coordinator for the CBCF CIBC Run for the Cure in which we are encouraging local businesses to Paint Canada Pink from July 19-25th. There are already a host of businesses that have signed up and KISS FM will be hosting a contest to win $2000 in free online advertising!
