RACQ International Women's Day Fun Run 2021
Rais_over_750_dollars

I've pledged to raise at least $750

I’ve signed up to the RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run!

I'm raising funds to support women with breast cancer now and into the future by funding breast cancer research that focuses on improving survival rates, working toward a world where ALL women diagnosed with breast cancer survive.

Like many of you I have been personally touched by the impacts of cancer - with the loss of my younger sister Debb Winton to breast cancer at just 53.  I still miss her terribly. And I know how important the support and research is.

As little as $65 can make a profound impact and take some of the stress off women with breast cancer and their families. Will you help me?

Thanks for the amazing support

Sunday 10th Jan
I am amazed and grateful each year for the wonderful support from people for this great cause. 

 

This year I had doubts about whether I would join the International Women’s Day Fun Run. The Fun Run raises much needed funds for Breast Cancer research and support services that show women with breast cancer that they are not alone.

 

The COVID pandemic made me think that perhaps it is not a good idea to get involved this year.  Then this week I listened to a podcast that described the impact that the pandemic has had on the important services they provide purely through fundraising.  Events have been cancelled, cash donations have all but disappeared and the future has become uncertain.

 

But fundraising is extremely important for the long term survivability of services like these.

 

So I decided to bite the bullet and again register for this years Fun Run and give my best shot at raising as much as I can to help. I have other reasons to be involved too – like many of you I have personally been touched by the impacts of cancer – losing my treasured sister to breast cancer, my mother and aunt to bowel cancer, and my previous boss and friend to brain cancer.  I couldn’t do much to help each of these special people but I can help to ensure the much needed research and support services continue.

 

So – if you can help even just a little that would be great. I have decided to set an ambitious personal goal with milestones along the way.  I am aiming to raise $5000 this year😊

Thank you to my Sponsors
