On Saturday March 24th, together with an amazing team of friends and colleagues, I am participating in SPIN
to Conquer Cancer benefiting breast cancer research at Princess Margaret Cancer
Centre. The fundraiser involves each of us participating
in three 45 minute back-to-back spin sessions (on stationary spin bikes) in the stunning atrium of 134 Peter Street in Toronto.
I will be spinning for my dear friend and inspiration, Carley Caldwell, who lost her battle with breast cancer last year at the age of 31. Carley is loved and missed everyday. She was so many things to so many people - to me she was a beautiful, hilarious, strong and supportive friend who was full of hope and positivity for the future. I know she would be so proud of everything we have accomplished so far - we will continue to fight cancer in her honour. Check out the "RUFF RYDERS - You can do it put your bike into it!" team (a group of my amazing friends who are also paying tribute to our girl Car)... as for the team name: Carley had an affinity for hip hop and gangster rap.
Another shout out to the "Good Ride Vibes Only" team - this is another group of my fabulous friends who have come together to support this important cause. I don't know where I would be without them!
As many of you know, I am going through my own battle … but
the good news is that I am still winning (!!!) and this is hugely due to the recent
advancements in breast cancer treatment. The treatment that I am currently on
is brand new and very effective. This treatment didn’t exist 5 years ago. It
goes to show that all of the funding to cancer research really does make a
difference and I am living proof. Please help me raise more money so we can
fund more treatments and maybe even find a cure! It’s really not as crazy as it
This year I am on the Spin2CC Committee and have been involved in the coordination of the event. Allied has donated the incredible venue along with many other generous donations from other companies to make this year's event the best yet. It is going to be amazing and I can't wait.
You can make a difference by donating to my page. Your support is appreciated beyond words.
GOOD VIBES ONLY!
With all my love,
