May 10th - JCC Climb for Cancer- Climb/Walk/Volunteer

Hello Everyone:
A new football season means a new year of CFL Fans Fight Cancer helping fight Cancer in Hamilton and the Golden Horseshoe. As tradition holds we'll be kicking off our year of celebrating the Ticats and fighting cancer with taking part in our and helping with the Juravinski Climb for Cancer on May 10th at the Chedoke Stairs!

Time to get in shape for Tailgating and Ticat Watching! My team - CFL Fans Fight Cancer is participating in the 8th Annual Climb for Cancer and 5 km walk taking place at the Chedoke Stairs, Hamilton on Saturday, May 10, 2014.

This Climb for Cancer is more than just a fundraiser! It's an opportunity to get together with CFL friends and family to fight against the incidence of cancer, to move to celebrate the courage of patients and survivors, to move to remember those we've loved and lost. There is a chance we'll be joined by some Ticat and Argo players and cheer team members, and for the first time members of the Toronto Rock Lacrosse Cheerteam!
CFL Fans Fight Cancer invites you to either join our 5 km Walk team (starts time 10:30) or the 1 hour CFL Fan climb at 12:00 noon. It's only $25 to register and you get a shirt to celebrate your success. Join our team or create a Ticat fan climb or walk team of you own.

Nice to see you Jare today, the smoothie was super, well ok a hot dog would have been great as well but the smoothie was perfect! You guys are friggin awesome that do the stairs for the fight agains't cancer, friggin awesome!! :thup: And the the walkers as well of course! :thup: Lost my best friend to the disease, horrible disease. People in our lives just aren't easily replaced and really never come to think of it, that is for sure.

You guys friggin rock! Great to see you once again Jare! :thup: Now we just need to get Caretaker one day to this event. :wink:

Hope it was a big success. I happened by on my bike just as they were packing up trucks at the foot of the stairs. I was happy there was still a water station in place at the top after pushing my bike up the 289 stairs. lol

Great job everyone! It is a great cause and an important one. We've all lost too many friends and relatives to this disease. Interestingly enough regular exercise is one of the best preventative measures we can take, so combining fund raising with exercise is almost appealing enough to get me to show up.

Although I have to admit that I actually hate exercise. I subscribe to W.C. Fields' great line: "Whenever I feel like exercise I lie down until the feeling goes away."

Maybe I can come next year and hand out smoothies. I like smoothies.
