Reflections on our Run for the Cure


Thank you all so much for the support! The Elements of Health Centre team took your donations to the pavement with over 4,000 other participants in Victoria on Sunday October 3rd. The crowd, filled with pink tutus, t-shirts and tights, was filled with spirit right from the jazzercise warm-up to the finish line. This year we are so proud to have been a small part in the over 33 Million dollars raised to help end the fight against breast cancer but as the Elements team crossed the finish line we were already planning how we could make next years Run for the Cure even better!

Earlier in the week I had the opportunity to meet and speak to a group of women, all at different stages of treatment, through the Encore Program at the YWCA. It was an amazing experience to be involved in that circle of sharing. We spoke about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture and the role they could play during the course of treatment and in recovery. We also had the chance to hear from different women about their unique journeys on the path to remission. It was a very emotional and humbling moment in my experience as a practitioner and I would like to thank the Encore Program and the wonderful women I met for allowing me into their circle that day.

On Sunday the Elements team ran for all women, we ran for hope and for healing and for a future without breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month! You can still make donations to the Elements of Health Team on the Run for the Cure website, thank you again for your support!
