Thanks for coming to my page and please support me as I raise funds for this important cause! I'm challenging myself to take my fitness activities to the next level and what better way than to join the Red Hot Chili Steppers?!
For someone who takes about 4000 steps/day on average, meeting 10,000 steps/day will be a stretch and I'll be walking, cycling and training my way there from September 8 to Oct 5.
Like many of you, I've had people in my life affected by Leukemia and Lymphoma and I would like to do my part to show my support in the battle against these illnesses.
Jim Abernethy lost his battle with Lymphoma in 2020 and the Jim Abernethy Challenge was established in 2021 to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphona Society of Canada. He was an avid cyclist, athlete and had a competitive spirit.
The Red Hot Chili Steppers are a team of 15 colleagues at AXA XL who will be targeting 10,000 steps per day every day from September 8 to Oct 5. While we are tracking # of steps for the challenge, all fitness activities will contribute to the final step count.
Light The Night brings communities across Canada together for one magical evening to share stories, remember loved ones lost and pay tribute to our heroes, bringing light, love and hope to dispel the darkness of blood cancers.
I am taking the first step and showing my support.
