Running Room 5km Fun Run/Walk to support our project - Sunday, June 6th

The next event to support the Faces of Courage Breast Cancer survivor calendar is this coming Sunday,June 6th at the Aurora Running Room at the 404 and Wellington Street East.

The event is $20 to register, starts at 8am and all proceeds go towards the calendar project. Since we are still a little short on the printing costs and dont want to take away from any of hte calendar sales to pay for it, we are hoping to raise enough from the run. 
There will be great raffle prizes and awesome swag bags for the registrants.

It's a great cause and promises to be a great event! 

Please register at http://www.runningroom.ca/ under June 6th events: Faces of Courage
or you can register the morning of, before 8am.

Jen van der Vecht will be taking photographs of the runners as well so this is a great opportunity to see the creative genius behind the calendar!

See you there!

Launch Party a Huge Success!

The breakfast kickoff for the calendar sales was an enormous success yesterday! The breakfast was spectacular, and healthy, and the reception was fantastic.

ANews, the ERA and SNAP! were there to cover the event. See the link below for the ANews story which was great coverage of the launch.


We sold 320 calendars in the 2 hour launch party and raised $6,400! A great start to the sales!

Thank you again Nature's Emporium so the amazing breakfast, great advertising and professional reception.

Jen's photos were spectacular on display on 20X30 poster boards and when they were unveiled, there wasn't a dry eye in the place!

Each photo tells a story all on its own and that message was well received by the crowd.  Everyone raved about how profound they were.

You should be proud Jen, the photos were amazing!

Stay tuned to see all of the photos posted on our blog soon!
