FINAL WALK - # 14 - 8.31 km - TOTAL: 116 KM!!!

Today the ride for Myriam closes. A sincere thank you to all my sponsors. Over the past 16 days I have walked 14 times for a grand total of 116 KM. Together you helped raise $834 towards cancer research. To date, the event has raised $83,000 in Canada and $46,000 in the USA all for cancer research. 

If you've given, thank you!!! If you have a few dollars to spare, please support this cause, you can view my blogs and donate here:

Much love everyone!!

Again, another beautiful 20 degree fall day in YEG. Great lunchtime walk and pace! 

1 day to go, wrapping up the event tomorrow morning. What a great experience thus far. Hoping for a few more donations. 

Until then! 

Walk #12 - 8.81 KM - 100 KM To Date!!! 2 more days to go...

Well, I cannot believe I have walked the equivalent of 2 Full and a half marathons in 12 walks over 14 days. Again a sincere thank you to my sponsors and those who have pushed me along the way. 

I have 2 more days to go and hoping I can generate some more donations for such a great cause. If you have a few dollars to spare, please consider donating, we are all in this together. Cancer has to be stopped.

Well I'm at the half way point of my 60 KM goal for this great cause. I wanted to drop a note at the half way mark and thank all my sponsors thus far! 

I've been completing 8 KM walks, today was a brisk walk at a great pace! If your interested I've completed mini blogs of all my walks on my ride for Myriam page. 

Cancer has touched all our lives in one way or another, unfortunately. Anything I can do to help rid this terrible disease is definitely worth while again, I thank you sponsors for your support! 

I'll update again when I reach my goal. Until then, stay safe and warm everyone! These walks in the YEG are getting chilly!

Walking for DeenO!

When the going gets tough, the tough get going!

Everyone has been touched by cancer at one point in their lives. That’s why this September I’m getting into shape in preparation for this year’s special edition of the Randstad Ride for Myriam.

I am motivated to end this terrible disease by supporting cancer research. Every step I take, every kilometer I run or bike, will be in honor of my loved ones, friends, and colleagues who have fought or are fighting a battle with cancer.

Please take a few moments to make a big difference, and give generously to my donation page.

I’m getting ready for the Randstad Ride for Myriam. How about you?
