Support Roberta Westwood in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.

I am participating in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, on Sunday, October 2, 2005, and I am asking for your support.

I will be walking in memory of my sister, Carol Leigh McCarron. Carol Leigh fought for 19 years, most bravely through the last 2 years of her life, and touched many. We lost Carol Leigh on October 12, 2004. She is sadly but fondly remembered every day.

I am one of more than 170,000 participants who will all be walking or running on October 2. The money I raise will go to fund breast cancer research, education and awareness programs across the country.
I need your support because with it, the Foundation can continue to fund the research and programs that are helping improve the quality of life for families touched by breast cancer.

Donating online is quick, easy and secure! You can pay by VISA, MasterCard or American Express. Within 20 minutes, you will receive a tax receipt for any donation that has been successfully received.

If you are interested in participating in this year's Run, there is always room for one more! The event takes place in more than 40 communities across Canada. You can search for Run locations by visiting

Thank you. I appreciate your support!

Roberta, we are organizing a 50th reunion for the '67 Grad Class and we're saddened to learn that Your sister Carol had passes away at such a young age. We have placed an obituary for her on our website (, but we have no picture of Carol. It would be nice to have one there. If you can help, please contact us through the website (there is a contact link at the bottom of the page) - it would be so much richer a tribute with a photograph.
