Running for the Cure – Updated

I have two friends who have organized teams for the Run for the Cure this weekend. As far as I know, they haven’t met each other before, but they have a lot in common. First, they are smart, strong, beautiful women. Second they were both diagnosed with breast cancer at a stupidly early age. I would like to introduce all of you to them, and also to introduce them to each other if they have not already met.

Laurie, meet Melanie; Melanie, this is Laurie.
Everyone, please meet Laurie and Melanie.

Laurie also writes one of my favourite blogs here.

If I were running this weekend, I would want to be on both of their teams.

Laurie’s No Pink for Profit will be participating for the second time together, and last year I was honoured to run with them.

Melanie has put together Twin Peaks (ha!) for the first year.

Please consider donating this weekend.

Thank you.


Update: Laurie is in today’s Ottawa Citizen, being wonderful! Please check out

    Breast cancer touches so many people, that most everyone must have someone they know who has battled against it. I will be sponsoring my good friend Mary again this year.
