UPDATE: On June 21st, I learned that the Ironman Mont-Tremblant race had been cancelled. There was no way I was going to give up on my goal of doing an Ironman for all the women fighting breast cancer. So I transferred my registration to Ironman Chattanooga in Tennessee. My goal has only been pushed back one month. I will be taking on this endurance event on September 26 instead of August 22. Thank you for supporting me.
On August 22nd, I will take up the event recognized as the most difficult endurance event in the world: the Ironman. During the day, I will have to swim 3.8 km in a lake before tackling 180 km of cycling through the beautiful hills of the Mont-Tremblant region and finally I will finish by running a full marathon, 42.2 km. In total during this day, I will complete 140.6 miles (226.27 km).
The Ironman will be a difficult day and will require several months of physical and mental preparation but on August 22nd, before going to bed, I will be able to say that I have won my battle, unlike all those women who sometimes fight for years against their cancer. Some get through it but others unfortunately lose the battle.
Having myself lost my mother and aunt to breast cancer when I was only 15 years old, this cause is very close to my heart. As a mother myself, I hope to be able to live without cancer not only for myself but also for my two daughters.
So I decided to dedicate my day and my battle to this cause and to raise funds for the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation.
Even though we are currently living in a special time, cancer does not take a break during the pandemic. I hope one day that all women can be diagnosed quickly and that none of them will have to leave their family, spouse, parents or children in mourning.
So I need your support.
Help me reach my fundraising goal!
Thank you for your support!
