The Run for the Cure

I am continuing to enjoy my food and gain energy so things are going well these days.  That is really all I have to report.

Onto the Run for the Cure.  Attached is a copy of the poster Abby created for the Lab at St. Paul’s (minus the pretty picture, apparently my techy skills are still somewhat lacking!).  The poster includes a link and instructions for registering.
The run is on Sunday September 30th so please register to participate if you can, or you can donate as a supporter of the team from the same link.

  1. Sheryl, I'm so glad you've decided to blog about your journey. I've been thinking about you and I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying food and feeling a bit better. I've joined “Sheryl's Specimens” and feel privileged to run with our friends from SPH lab. Call me if you need a friend at BCCA..I'm just next door at City Square.


  2. I have reposted this on my facebook page, hopefully you get to your goal and more! I will do what I can to pimp this out at work as well! FIGHT HARD AND FIGHT FREE most of all KICK CANCERS ASS!! 🙂


  3. Hey Sheryl. We are getting lots of response now. Our team is growing daily! I think we've got about 7 or so now on the team and we are already very close to reaching our Team goal of $1500. I was quite conservative setting the goal because it's more fun to exceed it than not to reach it. Looking forward to meeting your friends at the run.
