Help me raise money for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada
February 22, 2011
Have you heard of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada? If you are in Canada, and if you or someone you know is facing a brain tumour you should look them up. They provide a wealth of resources and friendly faces to help you in any way they can. Whether that be through an information session on the latest drug therapies, to educational materials, to funding research. How do I know this? I volunteer for them of course! Seriously, who else would I volunteer for?
Their Spring Sprint is a series of runs they organize across the country to raise money for the foundation. Check out if they have a run in your city, and sign up. I ran in Toronto last year and it’s a fun way to spend time with friends and family, get some fresh air and exercise, and eat lunch with some really inspirational people.
If you can’t find a run in your city, that’s where I come in! I am their Volunteer Co-ordinator for the Virtual Spring Sprint. You can still form a team, raise money, and set your own date (between April 16th to June 12th, 2011) and route to run. The more people who sign up for the virtual run the better because you not only help us raise much needed funds, but also raise awareness in communities where people may not be familiar with the Brain Tumour Foundation and the Spring Sprint.
