The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers
Leah Harrison, our Sales and Administration Coordinator, is taking on a big personal challenge this weekend, and for a very important cause.
She is participating in The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers benefiting the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
Leah will be walking a total of 60 kilometres over the weekend, split between Saturday and Sunday.
“The training has been tough,” Leah said. “There have been times where I haven’t been able to walk for days, but my pain is nothing compared to the suffering of those people around me with cancer.”
So far, Leah has surpassed her goal of $2,000 with help from family, friends and the Forme Medical family.
“Initially the goal was to raise $2,000 because that’s the minimum you have to fundraise to do the walk, but now I’m past that and I just want to keep going. The fact is that last dollar you raise might be the dollar that pays for the test tube that holds the cure for cancer, so I don’t want to put a cap on the amount and hope more people are willing to support me,” Leah said.
Everyone at Forme Medical is very proud of Leah’s efforts and we are thrilled to be able to contribute.
