Running everyday for cancer research

There is a lot of uncertainty in cancer patient's lives. What I want to make certain to them is that we care about them, we will fight for them and we will run for them! 

My name is Ben Wezeman and I'm a runner from Port Moody, British Columbia, Canada. I have started this fundraiser to support the Breast Cancer Society of Canada as it's a very common form of cancer and it even touched the woman who means the most to me. Thankfully the great work and advancements that have been made by cancer researchers helped diagnose her tumors early and get rid of them. 

I'm currently on a mission to run atleast 5km every single day. Through winter, spring, summer and fall I will be running. I'm doing it because I love running and I also want to make a difference. I have started to inspire some people and I'm only two weeks into the challenge. I'm hoping that the people I have inspired will join me in the fight against cancer and donate what they can!

This is for all the people across the globe who are suffering from cancer who don't get a chance to get outside and run like I do. I'm running for you! 

I'm hoping to raise 3,650 dollars which would represent 10 dollars for every run I will do by the end of the year! Anything helps and I believe if we band together and team up to fight this we can do big things! 

This means everything to me and I appreciate and thank every single one of you who have taken the time to read this and donate.
