Just wanted to let folks know that a friend and I took advantage of the Q spa certificate that was enclosed with our package on the day of the walk. We were treated so nicely and the spa was fabulous. We left feeling like we were walking on a cloud after our pedicures. I would highly recommend folks go there and try it some time. Oh and they washed my friend's car while we were getting pampered. Thanks to Mercedes-Benz Burlington for including their spa treatment and for Bright Run for all you do. Cheers,
Being a recent Cancer Survivor, I was able to attend this year at the Bright Run/Walk to support my cousin Cheryl Weldon and took a lot of pictures of the event, but I can't seem to be able post them. Can BRIGHT Run/Walk for Breast Cancer Research please help me or show me how to post the pictures? :-)
It was a wonderful day with awesome survivors at the BRIGHT Run/Walk for Breast Cancer Research.
Can someone please tell me if dogs are allowed on the walk on Saturday? For some reason, my emails are not going through, so having trouble getting an answer
Great local event to raise money for breast cancer
I will be participating in this event this year- last I participated for the first time - what a great day!
