Finding parking at this year's Race for Recovery

posted by Hope Cancer Help Centre    |   May 31, 2014 15:42

Please give yourself ample time to park at the Race for Recovery. There'll be a drop-off zone right at Meewasin Park, but the City of Saskatoon frowns on anyone parking along Spadina. Residential side streets are a much better bet!

The forecast calls for a high of anywhere from 16C to 19C for Race Day, under mostly cloudy skies with a 40% chance of showers. Each registered participant gets a white HOPE T-shirt this year. See you there!

Remembering Lilah's legacy

Lilah Brehon

Please take a moment to remember Lilah Brehon, one of the three women who founded the HOPE Cancer Help Centre 25 years ago. After a long battle with cancer, Brehon died at St. Paul's Hospital on May 10, 2014. Her funeral will be held at Grosvenor Park United Church at 10:00 a.m. Friday, May 23.

Lilah Brehon was a wonderful person, whose energy and spirit built HOPE into an organization that reaches out to all cancer survivors, regardless of their type or diagnosis. She was an integral part of the Race for Recovery. Always putting others before herself, she won the Saskatoon YWCA's "Woman of Distinction" award in 2001, along with HOPE's other two co-founders, Marie Thiesson and Olga Stefaniuk. 

"I always hated when people who, as soon as they heard somebody had cancer, decided they were going to die the next day," said Brehon, in a Saskatoon Express interview last year. "So I wanted to make this group all that time ago. You have to think positively because if you do it will help your immune system."

Congratulations to Julie Krug-MacLeod, the winner of a $50 Wal-Mart gift card in our early-bird registration draw. 

Registering online makes it that much easier to hit up friends and family for donations. It makes race day that much simpler for walkers and runners too. Why not give it a try?
