Introducing the Langley challenger
Amanda Emery is aiming to participate in a walk/run for cancer research.
Updated: March 14, 2013 1:28 PM
Weight: 132 pounds
Current Fitness Level: I work out occasionally
Current Diet: I don't watch what I eat and tend to over-eat
Fundraising Goal: $750 donation to the Canadian Cancer Society
Reason for Applying: Four years ago my mother passed away from colon cancer. Colon cancer runs in my family, and I have been making unhealthy eating choices that would put me even more at risk. I have always wanted to participate in a walk/run for cancers below the waist in honour of my mom, but still have yet to do it. I feel that I don't have the endurance needed to complete the task, or the confidence. This is something I would like to accomplish this year, to raise more money for cancer research by participating in Vancouver's "Underwear Affair" and to fall in love with healthy eating.
