Thinking pink brings in $1.4M

After running the 2010 CIBC Run for the Cure yesterday and winning five gold medals in dragon boat racing this year, it’s hard to believe Juliette Inglis was ever diagnosed with breast cancer.

After running the 2010 CIBC Run for the Cure yesterday and winning five gold medals in dragon boat racing this year, it’s hard to believe Juliette Inglis was ever diagnosed with breast cancer.

“I’m fine, I’m perfect and I’ve changed my lifestyle,” laughed Inglis. “Everything is good and dragon boat racing is a big part of it.”

This cancer survivor pushed to raise money and participate in the yearly fundraiser for the last 19 years. Her team, Breast Friends Dragon Boat Racing Team, has supported her and came first for top fundraising team at $29,000. “I’m just thrilled that they came up and even agreed to wear a hard hat and they’ve been supporting me since my diagnosis.”

Like Inglis and her team, Churchill Square was filled with many others. With the help of nice weather, this year Edmonton raised $1.4 million for cancer research.
