I just wanted to take a little break from my deathbed (just kidding) to thank a few people for supporting and sponsoring me at last weekend’s CIBC Run for the Cure. Thank you Jag, Harmit, James, Peter, Ashish, Jon, and Karen for donating your hard-earned cash towards this wonderful cause! Without your donations, I would probably not feel guilty enough to actually run and give it my all last Sunday. I’d have probably ended up sleeping instead, to get better, but I didn’t. I ran like the wind…very slow wind, but that’s besides the point. My co-worker Linda and I crossed the finish line after running the 5K in about 35 minutes! Not too shabby, considering my upper-respiratory problems! So yes, thank you ladies and gents for your sponsorship! I also want to thank le boyfriend (who finished the race in 25 minutes), my mom, and my friends, for being so very supportive of me! I know it wasn’t a marathon, but considering my fitness (or lack of thereof), it was a freaking miracle that I even crossed the finish line!
28,000 people participated in the Toronto run this year! And the event raised $4.1 million towards breast cancer research in Toronto alone. Hopefully that translates into a lot of saved tatas! If you want to see pics from the run or donate to this cause, please go to the official website www.cibcrunforthecure.com. Lainey Gossip also has some pics of the Jonas brothers participating in the event. Had no idea that they were even there…so random.
So once again, guys…Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
