WHY THE RUN?
Cancer touches many of our lives in so many ways, forms and outcomes. On August 31, 2020 we lost my Mother, Laura Jean Stankiewicz, to the battle against cancer. I feel like I have been given an opportunity, a path for hope, a way to give back. I hope to inspire, to give, and to show people that they can make a difference, big or small, that can have a lasting impact on so many lives, families and individuals. Running has given me so much throughout this chapter in my story, so I feel like it is time for me to give back. Join me in this journey and make a MOVE 4 someone in your life.
YOUR MOVEMENT STARTS TODAY
THE MOVEMENT RUN IS FOR EVERYONE
Run or walk, long or short, as a group or individual, all are welcome. Whether you want to walk a kilometre, or run 100, with a team, or on your own, we all have the same goal. Set a goal, create a challenge and for the month of May, lets show this community what we can do. Your goal can be one race, or accumulative for the entire month of May, individually or on a team. Set your own course on the trail, road, treadmill or even around your kitchen island, and challenge your family and friends to run or donate.
I will be running 100km in 24hrs on May 9th, 2021 at an undisclosed location (due to Covid 19 protocols). With Covid 19 likely still impacting gatherings and events, I hope each of you can set a target for May 9th and run on your favourite trail/ road and know that each one of you will be running beside me in spirit!
WHAT DOES IT BENEFIT
100% the proceeds from the MOVE4MOM run supports The McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation. The Vernon Jubilee Hospital played such a large roll in my mothers care while she was battling cancer so this is a way for our community to give back to the hospital that treats, cares for and connects this community. Show your support by running, donating and sharing this run with your family and friends.
HOW IT WORKS
Decide how much you would like to donate. Whether your donation is small or large, we appreciate every little bit. It means so much to me and the VJH Foundation. Your donation is the "entry fee" into the race but if you decide to give more, there is a link on the race page to add a donation or there is an option to donate on the registration. Share on social media that you are in the race using the hashtag #themovementrun It is a great way to challenge friends or family to match your donation, race against you, or join your team.
Click on the link below that will direct you to the race page. On this page you can sign up for whatever race you decide to set your mind to. On the race page you can also donate, purchase some awesome THE MOVEMENT swag and follow along on race day for all the stats. All donations over $50 above and beyond your entry fee will receive a free The Movement T-Shirt! All the profits of the swag will also be donated to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation. Please read all the details on the run information page for further instructions. If you don't already have one, download and create a Strava account to track your run(s) and follow others training and racing on Strava under The Movement Run Club.
