Run for the Cure.

Yesterday was the CIBC Run for the Cure, benefitting breast cancer research. It was a beautiful day for the walk, cold in the morning but just before the race it warmed right up. There were a ton of people out to run or walk the race and there were as many people there supporting those partcipating in the race. It was really good day, I got to hang out with friends, I had so much fun and even better, I was supporting a great cause.

In nursing school they teach us that advocating for client's and participating in local health related events is a very important part of our job, but not only that, it feels so good to know that you've made a difference no matter how small.

Here are a few pictures of the event and also the new banner is in honour of October which is breast cancer awareness month.

Also here is a link to Susan G Komen for the Cure it has a lot of really good resources and you can donate online to breast cancer research.
