Please join my sisters and me in the 2019 Gaetane Harvey Memorial Walk on Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22, 2019. A 53 KM walk throughout the streets of Belleville over the course of two days while raising funds to improve cancer care at Belleville General Hospital.
The Gaetane Harvey Memorial Walk was created in memory of my mother, Gaetane Harvey. A 53 KM walk, 1 KM for each year this earth was blessed with her love, laughter and kindness. My sisters and I lost our mother on January 30th, 2006 after a brief but hard fought battle against breast cancer. Her passing has fueled my passion to fundraise and so with the support of my sisters and family the Gaetane Harvey Memorial Walk was created. But this walk isn’t just about her. It is has grown into much more than that, it has grown with each walker that has registered and shared their own stories. We ask others to join our walk; in memory of a loved one who has passed, in support of a loved one who is going through cancer treatment or in celebration of a loved one who has survived this terrible disease.
The Gaetane Harvey Memorial Walk is a little event with a BIG heart! It is a community of people coming together, strangers becoming friends, feet on pavement, kilometers logged, funds being raised and making a difference no matter how big or small. We celebrate the lives of so many people that have been touched by cancer. I hope this walk empowers others to turn their grief, sadness or helplessness into something beautiful and meaningful.
Please join my sisters and me to help improve cancer care right here in our own community.
Thank you for your support,
