From Boxing in Kitchener to the Alpes in France Fighting For Cancer

On June 7th 2012, Jennifer St-Pierre, a Guelph local and ‘Boxing by Syd Vanderpool’ (Kitchener) member, goes to the “Big Challenge” Alpe d’HuZes initiative, in the fight against cancer!

PRLog - May 4, 2012 - On June 7th 2012, Jennifer St-Pierre, a Guelph local and ‘Boxing by Syd Vanderpool’ (Kitchener) member, will join a team from Wageningen University in the Netherlands, within the “Big Challenge” Alpe d’HuZes initiative, in the fight against cancer! The goal is for her team of 8 to each climb the Alpe d’Huez (part of the Tour de France) up to 6 times by bike in one day and raise 40,000 euro for cancer research through the international organization ‘Inspire 2 live’ (http://inspire2live.org/ events/93-29.aspx).  The whole event involves 12,000 cyclists and aims to raise 30 million euros for cancer research and runs with the motto ‘giving up is not an option’ – which applies to fighting cancer, extremely high fundraising goals, and cycling a mountain 6x in one day.  Turning cancer from a potentially lethal diagnosis into a treatable disease is what 12,000
cyclists will cycle for on June 7th. For more information on Jen, see her personal fundraising page:

locally, Jen is organizing a Fitness Marathon Fundraiser at ‘Boxing by Syd Vanderpool Athletic Centre’ in Kitchener this coming Sunday May 6th.  In this challenge, participants will complete 6 x 40 minute fitness (boot camp
style) classes in one day, with inspirational speakers between classes, healthy snacks and prizes to be won.  Registration is a $50 fee or waive the fee, do your own fundraising and qualify for top-fundraiser prize packages!
With either option, 100% of funds raised/collected are donated to the Inspire 2 live organization.  More information on this local event is available at:  http:// www.boxingbysyd.com/ Community.html

Jen is not a cyclist.  She has owned a road bike for a whole of 2.5 months now.  To say this is an enormous undertaking and challenge is an understatement.  With the support of an amazing set of coaches, family and friends though, Jen aim’s to cycle this mountain as many times as possible
and exceed her fundraising targets.  

Show your support, and that you are not willing to give up either, by attending the fitness marathon fundraiser or by sponsoring Jen for the Alpe d’HuZes event!
