Canadian Cancer Society
Winnipeg Police Service - 2016 - WPS Half Marathon
Sunday May 1, 2016

Please help us make this year's Winnipeg Police Service - 2016 in support of Canadian Cancer Society one of the best ever


My name is Joanne.  I am 35 year old marathoner and Ironman triathlete. On February 3rd, 2015, after a couple of days of feeling "off", a brain tumour was found (later diagnosed as glioblastoma - stage 4 brain cancer).  As an athlete, I had done everything right to reduce my risks for cancer, yet I still ended up with this horrible disease.  

At this year's Winnipeg Police Service Half Marathon, thanks to the targeting of funds specifically to brain cancer and the partnership between the Canadian Cancer Society and Brain Canada, all donations will have double the impact and double the chance to save my life, as well as many others.  This is a really big deal - it means that any money you choose to donate will be matched DOLLAR for DOLLAR by Brain Canada through the Canada Brain Research Fund.  If you are able to support my fundraising efforts, I'd just like to say thank you.  Your generosity will not go unnoticed.  I'd also like to say thank you all for your support and kind words this past year.  My family, my friends and I appreaciate this more than you know!  My goal in all this is to bring awareness to this leathal disease so that others will not have to run in my shoes.

By May 1, 2016, the day of this year's Winnipeg Police Service Half Marathon, I will have undergone two brain surgeries, 30 radiation treatments and over 90 days of chemotherapy.  It's been a hard year but thanks to the support and generosity from this amazing community, I am filled with hope for tomorrow.
And to prove that we can conquer anything that is thrown at us, I will be running the half marathon on May 1 - just a week after finishing another round of chemo (99 days so far)...  See you at the start line! :)
