Yorkdale 5k Weekend To End Women's Cancers + Project 4

Sunday morning I got up against my better judgement (as I was feeling horrible after sleeping for almost 11 hours) and went over to Yorkdale to participate in a WEWC training event.  If you stick with reading my blog you will soon discover that I support my share of charities, most of them local.  Sick Kids, Heart and Stroke, War Amps etc.  But this is my big one, where my time and energy goes...not just my money. 

In March of 2009 I lost a dear friend and co-worker to breast cancer.  She was one of the most inspirational, full of life women I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and I am a better person for having known her. 

In 2010 I walked the weekend for the first time, partially in her memory but also for the other women I know who have been through this.  Patients, friends, loved ones, family.  I also walk because I never want my daughter or anyone else to lose their life to something so senseless. 

Crabtree and Evelyn provided the walkers with little bags of samples with were tied with a cute pink moonstitch ribbon, so Project 4 is a set of hair clips made with the ribbon from my bag and one I begged from a fellow walker. 
















I think they came out pretty cute and I will wear them with pride at my next WEWC event.
