My Message

Running has been a great source of strength for me, and I've always been running for the fun of achieving something for myself. This year I would like to run for not only myself but also the person I love and the charity that I support.

At the 2018 Toronto Waterfront Marathon this year, I'm challenging myself to run a full marathon (42km) in support of Asthma Canada. 

Asthma is one of the most prevalent chronic conditions affecting Canadians. People with asthma are often referred to as “twitchy,” meaning they seem to overreact to stimuli such as aero-allergens and cold, dry air. Over time, the airways become inflamed and sensitive. This increased inflammation, if not treated, will often lead to an asthma attack. In Canada, over 3 million people have asthma, and 4 people die from asthma attack every week

It is a cause I care about because my boyfriend has been suffering from asthma since he was a child. By supporting Asthma Canada, we can help raise awareness of the condition, provide education on better symptom management, and ultimately support researchers to find a cure. 

Thank you for your support!
