Running for a cause

Monday, March 28, 2011 ·

I don't run. I just don't. I'm more of a get up, have a coffee, read the paper, kind of guy. The only time I run is if it's part of a sport,or chasing after my kids(which is another sport). Running for running doesn't appeal to me. However, I do make exceptions. I make it for my mother when I run for breast cancer, I make it for those that have it worse than I do with I.B.D, and I'm making one now for my friend Greg Hebert. Here he is emceeing my wedding less than 4 years ago.
























As many of you know, Greg is the host of Business at Night on CFRA. 2011 has already been quite the year. He was married in January, turned 36 in February, and by the time the calendar flipped to March, was told he probably had 6 months to live. Greg has been battling cancer since he was 34. He's not going down with out a fight, and certainly not without trying to make a difference. For some perspective, I encourage to view Doug Hempstead's moving piece from the weekend:

Now here comes to pitch: Get involved. Make a difference. Pledge me, or any other member of Team GreggyBear. Click on the link below, and then click on any team member you see in red on the bottom right.

Steve,

Thanks for sharing the video link.

Your good friend, Greg, is a very strong and giving person. He is very lucky to have you as a friend~someone he can talk to and know he's not going through this alone.

I have no doubt you and Greg will be at that Start Line in June.
