CIBC Run for the Cure

So a couple of months ago I signed up for the Run for the Cure.  I had just recently finished an incredibly successful Relay for Life AND supported FH during the Father’s Day Walk for Prostate Cancer and was jazzed to take on another important cause.


I just don’t have it in me.  The Run is now just a few short days away and I have done NOTHING.  After all of the support from my family, friends, coworkers and blog buddies while I fundraised like a mad woman for the Relay I can not bring myself to harass these same people for donations yet again. 

It’s a sad excuse really, and I feel awful…but I am not going to participate. 

I am going to support one of my favorite Halibloggers though!!  Miss Lex is still taking part in the Run so I’m sending a little donation love her way.  (Buying away my guilt?  Maybe.  But it’s still a good donation for a great cause!)

From Lex:

“~Because who's to say it won't be you or me someday...~

I have been wanting to do this run (walk) for several years. My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor and with that comes a lot of awareness for me. I will be walking for all of the women fighting this and all of the survivors out there!

Any donations are greatly appreciated! I urge all women to do regular breast self exams and be breast-aware.

So if reading this makes you feel like pulling out your wallet and offering up a little something, please think about supporting our girl Lex!  (Her donation page can be found here.)

I'm not going to be running either. I have way too much going on right now :(

Don't feel too badly Jaime. It's great that you are sponsoring your friend. I know what it is like to not want to overtax your friends with requests for donations. It's perfectly understandable.

Posting this post is definitely a contribution to the cause ON TOP of your donation to Lex :-)
