(June 16, 2009) – Three-time Canadian Champion and 1988 Olympic silver medalist Elizabeth Manley has become the national spokesperson for the 2009 Winners Walk of Hope. Manley, who lost her mother to ovarian cancer last year, says this is of great importance to her as she joins Canadians around the country to find a cure for this deadly disease.
The Winners Walk of Hope supports the Ovarian Cancer Canada and since 2002 the walk has raised over $4.5 million to fund ovarian cancer research. The Winners Walk of Hope is a chance for women and their families touched by ovarian cancer to come together to celebrate life, and to give hope and inspiration to one another.
The Winners Walk of Hope will be hosted on Sunday, September 13, 2009 in 14 cities across Canada. You can get involved by creating your own team or by joining an already existing team; you can even join Elizabeth’s team!
