Challenges are what we love to do, and when you mix them with a charity, well, that’s the cherry on top. Since November is pancreatic cancer awareness month, we are announcing our next sponsored challenge now. We are going purple to raise awareness to pancreatic cancer research, and we are raising money to fund its research.
330,000 people die annually from pancreatic cancer globally, and Richard Ellis, Krissy’s dad was one of its victims. Who is Krissy? She was once my trainer, but has become my sister, and although I never had the pleasure of meeting her father, I consider her family my own.
Inspired by our previous challenges, as a team of 20 people we are planning to burn 330,000 calories over a 40 day period; the equivalent of 8,250 calories a day!
Since the participants have already signed up, you can still be a part of this great cause. Please donate by going to www.justgiving.com/Kristina-Ellis-Ward or by simply spreading the word.
