Foodfare - Winnipeg Police Service - 2019 - WPS 5K Run
Sunday May 5, 2019
Please help us make this year's Foodfare - Winnipeg Police Service - 2019 in support of Canadian Cancer Society one of the best ever
The Winnipeg Police Service is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its half marathon on May 5, 2019 and hopes to make it the biggest and best yet.
This year's race is set to break the $2 million fundraising mark; the message from all leaders was simple: by working together, life can be BIGGER than cancer.
In its first 10 years, the half marathon raised its first $1 million in support of research and programs that support Manitoba cancer patients. Four years ago, the race organizers focused fundraising efforts on one of the toughest forms of cancer – brain cancer. Every year about 3,000 Canadians are diagnosed with brain cancer and 2,400 people in the country die from it. It is the most common form of cancer death among young children.
I am participating in the 5K event this year and it's my first 5K running event. I've had a lot of support from family and friends while training for this event and I am truly humbled by their support.
If you would like to support me on May 5th and in turn, support brain cancer research, please feel free to do so. If you want to support me with "best wishes", that will be greatly appreciated as well.
