Workout to Conquer Cancer 2024
$5,190.00 Raised


Welcome to The SemiColons team page!

This May, The SemiColons will be moving, sweating and fundraising every single day for life-saving research and care at BC Cancer.

Staying fit, getting "a F.I.T." and my amazing family and friends are my reasons for participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer. On April 21st, 2023, I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. I'm pretty sure I was hoping for the word "hemorroids" to come from the doctor's lips but that wasn't the case. And, it may not be very lady-like at what I've been telling Cancer to do, but you gotta show it who's boss! Own your diagnosis, don't let it own you. I want to thank ALL of my family and friends for their love and support and positive vibes...I carry all of it with me every day!!

I'm telling everyone my story because I consider it to be more like a "public service announcement". I'm hoping that the team and I can spread the message to everyone to get check ups and simple tests done that they may have been putting off. It's a "shitty" subject but worth talking about!

And, this challenge is more than exercise. It's about coming together and making an impact for the 80,000 British Columbians facing cancer each year.


As we get ready to sweat our way through May, please consider moving with us and joining our team! And, if you are able, show your support by donating to our team.


Let's move for the people who need our support because, together, we are stronger than cancer.


Thank you!
