Monday, July 25, 2011Saturday and Sunday was the Weekend to End Women's Cancers in Calgary. My mom and Auntie Val, along with five other women, walked 60 km as team Strength in Strides and collectively raised $29,603.25 to go towards cancer research.
As you can expect, I'm damn proud of them. I drove down to Calgary Sunday morning to surprise Mom and Auntie at the finish line.
The organizers keep the route fairly hush-hush - not even the walkers know where they're going - but luckily Greg and his master espionage training pulled through and I made it.
Afterwards we went to the Wild Rose Brewery and Patio and I got a wicked sunburn where I missed sunscreen (despite my sister-in-law's warnings - no need to say I told you so Meredith) but that's nothing compared to what these guys went through. I am so proud of my amazing Aunt and Mom!
