Thousands of people are expected to gather along the False Creek seawall to cheer on the runners that have stripped down to their underwear for the annual fundraising event. Each participant has pledged to raise a minimum of $300 for the BC Cancer Foundation. Participants can sign-up online and begin fundraising right away.
As a marathon runner and advocate for healthy, active living, I’m not being shy about stripping down to my underwear for this excellent cause. I also wouldn’t expect you to be shy about making a donation on my fundraising page for these devastating cancers. Donations are tax deductible and a receipt is automatically emailed to you.
At the end of the race, we know that we have helped to make a huge difference in these awful diseases. When the BC Cancer Society wins this race, it will mean people won’t have to suffer through these cancers. We’re all in this together and this is one race we can all win.
Thank you in advance for your support and generous donation!
