Please know… this is not about me… but about a team of people that come together to bring awareness, raise funds to keep at our local VGH pediatric oncology ward and move for a lot of kids that just want to be running, walking and outside of hospital walls… YES be like kids!  Everyone welcome… individuals, kids, families… it is a team effort.
Thank you…over and over again…
