CIBC Run for the Cure | Calgary Photographer05.27.11

As many of you know, Tot Shots has sponsored a team for the CIBC Run for the Cure for the last couple of years in honour of my mum.  For the second year in a row, our team was recognized as one of Calgary’s top fundraising teams.  So, again, I thank all of my teammates and everyone who donated to this cause.  I am excited to do this again!

I recently learned that one of our teammates from the last two years was diagnosed with breast cancer – a young mom like most of us.  It has actually been a brutal couple of months as I have learned a number of people that are close to me have loved ones that have been affected by cancer.  This just makes me want to do more for this cause.  So I have set up the team again for 2011 and increased our goal to $10,000 (we raised over $8,500 last year) and I am kicking it off with a Social Series event this weekend to start raising funds in honour of my mum and of our teammate.  This Social Series event is the 5th in the series and the second focused on photography (based on last year’s response to this event).  Due to the response for the event this year, I will be hosting a second one in September.  A note will be sent out to clients in August with the details.

I invite you to join our team this year for the run/walk on Sunday, October 2nd – http://www.runforthecure.com/site/TR/RunfortheCure2012/PrairiesNWT?px=1064204&pg=personal&fr_id=1294.  It is an amazing day for a great cause.  I look forward to working with you on this!
