Power Team Member: Noreen Remtulla
So I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro last year... what's the next big challenge!?
This year, I'm supporting a 3-year-old "superhero" who was diagnosed with leukemia last year by raising funds for LLSC while conquering a personal challenge.
What could be bigger than climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro!?
This year, I've got a new challenge...to run 10K in the Edmonton Police Foundation Half Marathon on April 26, 2015 while raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.
WHY I'M RUNNING
Just a few months ago, I found out a friend's child was diagnosed with Leukemia.
Three-year-old Aaryan is an upbeat and energetic kid -- I was even at the hospital the day he was born!
When the LLSC approached me to be part of the, "Power Team" after they saw my article as a Top 40 Under 40 in Edmonton's Avenue Magazine, all I could think about was little Aaryan.
It took some convincing that I could do a 10K run...and here I am now, making a difference.
Just a month before my scheduled race, I found out my cousin in Ontario was diagnosed with an aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
