Anastasia, who is a volunteer for Canadian Cancer Society, is helping organize Daffodil Dash – a 5K run or a 1K walk at Creekside Park, which will take place on April 29 at 9 am!
In her words, “It is a great opportunity to support research on cancer prevention as well as show people living with cancer that they are not alone. It is possible to register as an individual or as a team. I think it would be pretty great if we could create a Columbia College team and help contribute to eradicating this disease that hurts the lives of so many people.”
Here’s some more information about the event:
“By registering to fundraise for the Daffodil Dash, you are helping the Canadian Cancer Society in our mission to eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life for people living with cancer. More importantly, you are showing those who are living with cancer or who have lost someone to cancer that they are not alone. Many communities, all over the province will be walking, running and dashing to put an end to cancer. Every dollar counts and being a part of the Daffodil Dash is so much more than a run. This is your chance to get involved – as a team or as an individual – and find fun, creative and exciting ways to help the Canadian Cancer Society maximize funds directed to cancer research and programs supporting families dealing with this awful disease.”
