I Survived!

It's been just over a week since I completed the OneWalk for all cancers.  What an incredible experience.

As part of team RBC, we started our event with a team reception at RBC watermark place on Friday night; followed by a delicious dinner with good friends.

The morning came far too early.  Not only was it dark, it was WET!  Despite that, we were all in good spirits!  By mid morning, the rain had stopped and we were stripping off out rain ponchos.

Outside Princess Margaret hospital, walkers could sign the wall in support of those touched by cancer.  I added the name of my Papa, who passed away from bladder cancer; and, a close family friend taken far too young, from ovarian cancer.

Some refuelling for lunch and we were on our way.  I ended up with the worst Charlie horse in my calf for the last 7 or so kilometres, and while I inevitably slowed my team down, we got it done!  25km completed, all for a good cause!
