Run For The Cure 2010

Today myself, my partner Todd, and my best friend Christin participated in the CIBC Run For The Cure at the Ottawa run site. This is an event that is run across Canada every year in the hopes of raising money for Breast Cancer Research and raising awareness. There were 9,000 participants in Ottawa who raised 1.6M dollars, my final total this year is $1,430! I surpassed my goal of $1,000 and would like to thank each and every one of you who as supported me both financially and with well wishes!


I have written a slightly longer more involved post over at my other blog, please visit Battle of the Bulge to read a little more and see a few more pictures from the day.  Christin has also written a nice little post about the day too!
