Please help us raise money to support those faced with cancer as this terrible sickness affects each and every one of us in one way or another. Any donation, however small or big, would be greatly appreciated. 

On February 1st, 2014, Joel Payeur and Shannon Penway will take on one of the greatest challenges of their lives to raise money for cancer research. They will be running through the jungles of Costa Rica for a 5 day adventure race. This race is called The Coastal Challenge, which features running over 120km of mountains, rainforests, beaches and rivers. We will be faced with many adversaries throughout this race. Not only will we be challenged physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually. However great of a challenge this may be to us, it will be nothing compared to the challenge that Joel's mom, Lorraine Begin, was forced to face.

Five years ago Lorraine was diagnosed with colon cancer. Upon receiving this diagnosis and researching her options, she decided to take on this challenge with holistic and naturopathic treatments. By carrying a positive outlook on life, she has now been in remission for over a year and has never been happier. 

Lorraine is just one example of so many others who are faced with this challenge to overcome. We wish all the best to those fighting cancer and strength to those being affected by cancer. Let's help find a cure.
