Run For the Cure

This year, like every year for the past 10 years, I am doing `Run For The Cure'. I actually started doing the run on my own, before my mom was ever diagnosed. My mom passed away 4.5 years ago from breast cancer that had metastasized into her bones. This run is a time of celebrating her life, remembering her, and celebrating those that have beat cancer. It is also a time to reflect on our health and work towards not having this disease ourselves. This year I plan on running it, which will not be as easy as it may have been for me in the past. If you would like to donate, please click on this link. Hopefully it works. Thank you!
I better get Kai some pink this year, he will LOVE it!!
It is so important to me that the boys do this run each year. I want them to connect to their oma this way and it's something we can do to remember her.


  1. I know that you sometimes read my blog so I'm sure you've seen my own efforts with the run. I run for my mom that survived breast cancer, but this year I will also run in honour of your mom.

    Good luck fundraising.

  2. You can do it, L! I'm so glad this is a tradition for you that gives you a natural opportunity to remember your mom and share her with your boys. Good stuff.
