EMC news – As part of an ongoing campaign of health promotion, a team from the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health participated in Ottawa’s Run For the Cure on Sept. 30.
Even though the weather wasn’t completely cooperating, Carlie Chase, the director of initiatives at the centre and her team took part in the annual run to help raise money for breast cancer.
“It was amazing event,” Chase said. “We had everyone from all ages participating on our team and it was great.”
The team participated not only to raise funds for breast cancer treatment and research, but also to promote healthy living among members of the Wabano community.
The running group is one of the three fitness groups the centre organizes weekly.
