I've been nominated!!!!

Wow! I just received an email to let me know I've been nominated and is in the FINALIST stage for the New Year's Resolution Contest hosted by Vancity! My one and ONLY bank!

There's a link located at

Please vote for me!!!

I must say this is great news for me! I've been feeling slightly depressed lately because ticket sales for my Bowling Event hasn't been that great. In addition, it's been difficult getting people to donate things for raffle tickets on the night of.

If you check out my poster at

It's not too late to contact me for tickets! And as always, the proceeds all go towards supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.

I recently visited Jessica (My Honoured Hero for my first half Marathon) and she's been doing well. Jessica is a 13 year old little girl that is the oldest of six children. Her family rents our basement suite for many years and I've seen their family grow throughout the years. I used to babysit Jessica and her siblings when I was younger and they were always the best behaved kids EVER!

Jessica was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) the most common form of Leukemia for children under the age of 20. However, there is optimism within centres that specialize in the treatment of children especially centres like the Children's Hospital of Vancouver because survival statistics have dramatically improved over the past 30 years. Most children under 19 with ALL are cured!!!

My goal is to raise $2000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. If you would like to support my cause, please click on the link below. It's a secure and safe site and a tax receipt will be forwarded to your email as soon as you're done.

Thank you once again!!!
