"No pain, no gain" isn't the right mentality for getting moving. In fact, it can be harmful when you're walking, running or recovering to ignore pain! πŸ‘€

That's why Kintec's prize for Week 2 of the Step Up Challenge is a Massage Roller! Taking care of your body while being active is just as important than the activity itself.

➑️ Today is the LAST DAY to enter Week 2 of the challenge, so be sure to hop over to our page or Instagram and comment on our Step Up Challenge post to share how you got active this week!

➑️ Week 3 kicks off tomorrow, so we'll be back with our winner announcement and our next prize! πŸ‘Ÿ

➑️ Week 4 will be our final week with a GRAND PRIZE including brand new running shoes (chosen by you!) with a minimum of $250 raised for BRIGHT Run. Be sure to get your fundraising in before September 8 to be eligible. πŸ₯³

awesome event....will drum up some more walkers for 2020...:)
For the month of August up to 15% of my Pampered Chef sales will be donated directly to the BRIGHTRUN. I will be working alongside the executive chair of the BRIGHT Run/Walk for Breast Cancer Research. This cause is close to my heart for many reasons. I work at Juravinski Cancer Centre with the patients that are fighting this battle. They need every bit of help possible If you would like to place an order to help just click the link below. "ALL funds raised by participants go directly and entirely to breast cancer research." Link to the fundraiser...
Another great event! Thanks to all the volunteers, executives and participants for making it such a fun day!
I will DOUBLE my donation amount to $2000 if we sell out my Nashville Experience show on September 8th at the McIntyre Performing Arts Center in the Mohawk College! 895 tickets to sell, lets round up the support for the BRIGHT Run/Walk for Breast Cancer Research I promise an upbeat night full of fun and surprises celebrating life, laughter and music! Get your tickets for only $29 at the Mohawk College Campus Store on Fennel or online at https://secure.ticketpro.ca/?lang=en&aff=wbontop#def_1287519618 PLUS I will be raising money at the show with my Honkytonk Donation request jug!
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!
