In Store Challenge #2 & Inspiration

Saturday was another in-store challenge for us Greenfighters. We were collecting donations for the Canadian Cancer Society & providing Daffodil pins for those that donated.  There is a prize for the GreenFighter that sold the most pins, and one of my fellow fighters has stated that if she is the winner she will be shaving her head!  Her story, along with all the other fighters’ is inspiring.  Each of us is doing this for a very special reason and I have to give a shout-out to all my fellow GreenFighters … you are ALL doing an amazing job! And keeping so many people inspired.

I love reading about their progress, or their ups and downs.. because, really… that’s life!   They have all put themselves out there and shared so much  – keep up the great work.  We are all winners in this one!

My Saturday started out early, 6:30am taking my son to the hockey rink and then meeting up for coffee with a friend & heading out to Fort Langley to photograph some amazing women that meet every Saturday morning and Wednesday evening as part of Abreast In A Boat, a Dragon boat team of breast cancer survivors.

Inspiring to say the least, these warrior women are out there paddling together and sharing a special bond.

What an awesome way to start the day!

I then headed off to Kin’s Market at Guildford for some Cancer Fundraising.  Met and chatted with some wonderful people (and a friendly bearded dragon!). We had delicious fruit samples, kids activity books, baloons etc.  for all to enjoy.

Finished off my day by going to a Canucks game.  All in all a great Saturday!

Kin’s Green Fighters Cancer Fundraiser …. “ONE THING”….

Saturday March 9, 2013 … Mark it on your calendar!  Come visit me at Kin’s Market in Guildford from 2-4pm and share with me your “ONE THING”.

Last weekend all 13 of the “Green Fighters” met.  What an awesome group of fighters, each with their own story & journey towards a healthier life.  As I have mentioned before, part of our participation in this 13 week challenge means that we also have weekly challenges to take part in.  Some are individual challenges, a few are in store challenges and many will involve YOU….. the reader.

Each challenge also offers a prize at the end, some challenges will also be offering readers a prize as well.

My first in-store (Guildford Kin’s Market) challenge takes place Saturday March 9, 2013 from 2-4pm.  I will be there helping the staff out, prepping delicious samples of fruit and veggies,  and distributing literature from the Canadian Cancer Society.  The challenge part of this day for me (and each of the other participants at their own designated stores) is for us to chat with the customers and have you all fill out your “ONE THING” on a post-it note.  Whomever collects the most post-it notes, out of the 13 challengers, will receive a new Bike, Helmet and Water Bottle from Canadian Tire!

So, what does “one thing” mean? This is a pledge to yourself … Pledging “one thing” you can do to improve your health.  My one thing, is to consistently exercise and continue to eat more fruit and veggies.  What is your one thing?… Why not come visit me March 9th and write it down?!

As well, I will be collecting donations that will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.  If this is something you wish to make a donation towards, my fundraising page can be found at: http://cancerevents.kintera.org/angiebunnell  Please share with family and friends.

If you do wish to make a donation, however do not want to make a donation online, please let me know and we can arrange to meet-up for a visit or I can let you know my mailing address.

You have all been such an awesome positive supportive group of readers already, and I look forward to sharing this 13 week journey with you all.  Your words of encouragement are just that… encouraging! I love it & appreciate each and every one of you!
