C95’s RADIO MARATHON RAISES $257,560 FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH
The 2014 C95 Radio Marathon for Breast Cancer Research raised $257,560 surpassing $3.5 million dollars raised since the C95 Radio Marathon began 15 years ago. This year’s Marathon showcased stories from breast cancer survivors who turned heartbreak into inspiration.
Amanda LePage, the C95 Radio Marathon Ambassador, is the typical small town Saskatchewan woman. A mother. A wife. The person in line behind you at the grocery store. She had a regular life and in an instant her entire world changed. Diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33, with two young children and a loving husband, Amanda had no choice other than to fight for her life.
Amanda urges, “I never believed it could happen to me. CANCER. Would I even live to see my kids grow up? What would my kids do without a mom? What would my family do without me if we don’t beat this? Today it was me. Tomorrow it could be you. I know we can do it if we unite! Join us in the fight. Help us conquer breast cancer by making a donation to the C95 Radio Marathon.”
Through the support of survivors, community fundraisers, and corporate partners, the C95 Radio Marathon has become the largest and most successful fundraiser in support of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. Donations come from all walks of life and no amount is too small!
All partners involved with the Marathon share the same goal – to find a cure for a merciless disease that knows no boundaries. Proceeds from the Marathon provide resources that help Saskatchewan researchers work toward finding a cure for the 700 Saskatchewan women diagnosed with breast cancer in Saskatchewan each year.
