Well, it's been a while, but here I go again :)
In April 2011, I participated in the Paris Marathon as a breast cancer survivor, to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Just a week ago, a dear cousin of mine lost her long battle with breast cancer, so I've decided to put a team together for the Color Run Sydney, in her memory.
Since walking a difficult 42km marathon was achievable, I jumped at the chance of rallying a team of loved ones in my own hometown and doing such a fun, colourful and joy-filled run, which is an easy 5kms!
I would love it if you could also join my team in the Color Run Sydney on 10th February 2013. We are called "Team Pink" and I'm the Team Captain ("Jennifer Reid"), so be sure to register under the right team! (I was going to call our team the "Pink Cupcakes", but I don't think the boys would have appreciated it...Team Pink is pushing the boundaries enough!)
So far, I have a bunch of over 20 of my precious family and friends doing it with me to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). But "the more the merrier", as the old saying goes! You can register at the Color Run Sydney website. But hurry, as there's only a certain number of spaces available.
Please let me know if you do register on our team, so I can add you to my email list for upcoming fundraising events, training get-togethers or just to motivate you before the big day :)
If you can't join in the Color Run, please keep an eye out for our upcoming fundraising events, or donate online here. "Zero breast cancer deaths by 2030" is what NBCF researchers are aiming for...and we're committed to helping them in this vital cause.
Please join us in any way you can!
