REGISTERED! 2012 Mother's Day Run and Walk 5k


I've been so busy this month, that I didn't even realize I hadn't yet set up the team for the Forzani Mothers Day Run and Walk until we got the brochure in the mail yesterday!

So, after being asked a bazillion times today - I came straight home and registered the team!  Hubby and I will be doing the 5k again this year (one of us will be pushing the twins in the double stroller - probably him, since I did it last year).

This is one event that means so much to our family, since our twins were born 6 weeks premature and needed to spend the first 8 days of their little lives in the Calgary NICUs.  The care they received truly gave them the best start in life and we will be forever grateful to everything the staff did during those 8 days!  This race is a major fundraiser for the NICUs and forming a team to run or walk at this event is our way of giving back.

We're not actively fundraising, but if anyone wants to donate to me, I have a donation page set up at:

This year, the money raised will go toward buying the following equipment:


Foothills Medical Centre
4 SiPAP Units

Rockyview General Hospital
SiPAP Unit
Neonatal Ventilator

Peter Lougheed Centre
8 Joey Beds
Bili Bassinet

And, if you are in Calgary and are interested in joining our team, please email me for more information.
