Welcome to Nancy McMillan's BRIGHT Run fundraising page.
BRIGHT Run 2020 is coming into focus for another year. But who would have thought that we would be looking at it through a COVID-19 lense. Social distancing and saftey-first has become our mantra, and rightly so.
It is hard to believe that this will be the 13th time that I will lace up the well-worn pink running shoes and head out in my neighbourhood, 2m from my neighbours, to walk on behalf of hundreds of supporters who have sponsored me over the many years. With your help I have raised close to $200,000 to support breast cancer research being done at my Cancer Centre - Juravinski in Hamilton.
If, like me, you are a bit on the superstitious side you will also note that this is our 13th annual BRIGHT Run event. I know it will be a lucky 13 but I have my horseshoe, four leaf clover and rabbits foot at the ready just in case!
While it has been almost 13 years since that fateful day that I had "the" dream and found my lump, never a day goes by that the little voice in my head does not whisper "I'll be back". Well not if I can help it, but thanks for the message! I do the best I can everyday and never go to bed with any regrets...just in case.
My Mom passed away in December so this will be the first BRIGHT Run that I will not have her to cheer me on from the sidelines. No worries. I know that she is sitting right here on my shoulder watching my every move, hearing every word and guiding my thoughts and energy as I CARRY ON for another "virtual" BRIGHT Run.
Please join my by lending your support so that others will never have to walk in my well-worn pink shoes.
Thank you. Nancy
