Team Holly and Katie
Welcome back previous participants and hello there to anyone new joining our team! Its hard to believe this will be our second year participating in this event since losing Kate, and our 14th year participating since losing Holly! Time seems to both fly and stand still!
Nothing is easy when we lose someone so close to us. But it helps us to know that maybe we are supporting, encouraging or helping others in their journey with brain tumours. This event was extremely important to Kate after losing her sister. Since losing her it has become important to all of us who knew her to continue to pump energy into anything that increases awareness and supports research to improve outcomes for people diagnosed with this devastating disease!
As we are all aware... it doesn't matter if your brain tumour was caused by the environment, genetics or horrible luck...there is often no cure! People living with a brain tumour diagnosis have to cope with daily physical, mental and emotional effects... often going to bed at night not knowing what challenges tomorrow will bring.
Please come and participate on Sunday June 8 wearing your brightest PINK in memory of our girls!! We would love to see you there!
Love Karen, Rick, Matt and Andrew XOX
I’m part of the movement to end brain tumours and I hope you’ll support me and my team in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease.
By signing up for a Brain Tumour Walk, me and my team have made a commitment to end brain tumours and to help provide the essential information and support that every person diagnosed deserves.
All money raised through Brain Tumour Walk events strengthens the national movement to end this life-changing disease and brings hope to individuals and families across the country:
Hope for progress in discovering the cause of brain tumours.
Hope for better treatments for every child and adult diagnosed.
And most of all, the hope for a cure.
Thank you for supporting me and my team, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.
