Having just had my father in the hospital with heart issues. He’s ok now but while I was there the last few weeks I found myself walking the halls looking at all the kids that had cancer and other health related issues. In speaking with the parents and kids we should be able to understand just a fraction of what they might be feeling.
Actually, the devastation that cancer can cause is sickening. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about kids as young is 4 having cancer. It make my problems seem irrelevant.
They need our help!
I friend of mine emailed me this week about a fundraiser she and 5 other women are doing. They are running in the “Great Canadian Sears Run” – which is a relay to end kids cancer (they are running from Toronto to Blue Mountain) and they are one of the top Toronto fund raising team already! They have decide to have an event at the Edge Wine Bar and Grille tonight at 8:00 pm.
Larry Kurtz one of the organizers of the jazz and blues festival will be playing music tonight and there is a $10 cover that goes to the paediatric cancer research and with that we are giving away door prizes like a scandianve ($250) gift certificate.
The relay (131km) is September 24, from Toronto to Blue Mountain. It’s about 22km each.
Local running coach Smooth running aka Kate Laing has many clinic running and starting in the fall and she, my friend Sandra Pratt and 4 others will form one of the teams that will be running!
Tell others about it and if you can give, please give. Every dollar helps.
