Look ma, I planted a tree!

When you raise a certain level of money for the Run for the Cure, they let you select a prize. One of the prizes I chose last year was to have a tree planted. I forgot all about it until I received this message today.

Hi Christine,

Thank you for choosing to support the 2009 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. You’ll remember that as part of your participation you earned Run Rewards and chose to plant a tree in our forest of hope.

I’m delighted to tell you that your tree will be planted by Tree Canada in Kamloops British Columbia during May 2010.

Your tree will be a lovely Douglas Fir a hearty evergreen tree that will thrive in this community which has been devasted by wildfires, wind storms and the mountain pine beetle.

You are helping hope grow in two remarkable ways; your participation in the Run inspires hope for the 1 in 9 Canadian women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. And your tree inspires hope for a greener, brighter and cleaner future for all of us!

Thank you for helping to create a future without breast cancer and we look forward to seeing you on October 3rd for the 2010 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.

What I'm grateful for today: Our Tuesday Toonie group. We see a different movie every week and then go for lunch. Today we saw Crazy Heart.
