CIBC Run for the Cure: Make a donation and WIN BIG!

This year, Team Tiger Lily will join tens of thousands of Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life to participate in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.

Together we support the vision of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. To create a future without breast cancer.

Team Tiger Lily's Story

I first participated in 2005 and ran the 5k on my own. I made the front cover of the Toronto Star (amongst the other runners). My mom was so proud she bought 10 newspapers, laminated the cover and mailed copies to family members across Canada, the US and Italy. What a proud mama!

In 2006 my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer. She fought with grace, never complained, kept smiling and passed away with dignity on August 27, 2007.  I ran alone again in October 2007 but this time I dedicated my run to my mom. The run was the beginning of my grieving process. I felt like it was the first time I was able to exhale in over six weeks.
Today Team Tiger Lily consists of 10 members and counting. We walk and run for not only my mother but for everyone who has been touched by cancer. This year our goal is to raise $10,000.00 for Breast Cancer research. As team caption I more than determined to reach this goal. Why? Because I remember so clearly this one afternoon sitting in the chemotheraphy ward at Mount Sinai Hospital with my mother. A volunteer who was a Cancer survivor was distributing snacks to the chemotherphy patients and their families. She was a beautiful and cheerful woman. Always so warm and kind to my mother and the other patients. That one afternoon my mother turned to me and said, "When I get better I am going to volunteer my time to Cancer patients just like she is."
If my mother was still here there is not a doubt in my mind and heart that she would be dedicating her life to making a difference in Cancer patient's lives. Because my mother is not physically here anymore it is my honor and duty to fulfill her dreams. Because my mother was so proud of me when I did my first run in 2005 I continue to put forth my energy and enthusiasm in the CIBC Run for the Cure. So much so I am offering a HUGE prize to one lucky donator. See below for full contest details.
