PUSH FOR YOUR TUSH VIRTUAL EVENT 2020
To ensure the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, staff and wonderful sponsors, we announced in March that all of Push For Your Tush 2020 5k /10k run/walks across Canada would go virtual.
We are so proud to announce that we had 255 participants, 60 teams, over 1350 donations and raised almost $115,000.
Participants in the PFYT virtual run/walk, received health/wellness focused newsletters with expert exercise tips, healthy FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER recipes, and tricks to get their TUSHES in gear. They will also soon receive our exclusive PFYT runner’s gift pack.
We hosted a Virtual Event on June 28th, and just like last year’s PFYT, our fundraiser featured a guest speaker, who shared with us their personal journey with colorectal cancer. We then united nationally as one through exercise as our personal trainer, Philip got our booties moving! As we cooled down from our group workout, we met Colorectal Cancer Canada’s CEO Barry Stein, to learn more about CCC and how our generous participant’s and donor’s contributions will help so many Canadians.
As we are determined to reach our fundraising goal in order to continue to support Colorectal Cancer Canada’s programs, we will be extending our fundraising deadline until October 18th. We encourage all to continuing spreading awareness and fundraising while those of you so inclined to keep pushing your tush and sharing your successes in the PFYT5K10K Strava club until October 18th!
Our organization could not maintain our commitment to the cause without the generous support of the caring PFYT community.
