Weight: 140 pounds
Current Fitness Level: I work out occasionally
Current Diet: I eat and snack a lot but tend to eat mostly healthy foods
Fundraising Goal: $1,000 donation to the Canadian Cancer Society
Reason for Applying: About a month ago I donated a kidney, and since then have been unable to do much physical activity, and have gotten into the habit of unhealthy eating and watching a lot of TV. Once my six weeks of recovery is over, I really want to get into shape and eat healthy, but am worried it will be hard to get my body doing physical activity again at a safe level without guidance and support. I also love that this challenge is about raising money and awareness for cancer prevention and research. Just over a year ago my niece was diagnosed with brain cancer, and after battling bravely and with so much joy and love for the last 14 months, the doctors just told us she has another brain tumour and there are no treatment options left. I can’t believe that, and so we are hopeful that research will continue to move forward and that she will prove the doctors wrong.
