Thanks for stopping by for this exciting auction!

I hope you are ready to bid on some fabulous and UNIQUE items!

There are also many fitness packages, including some awesome fitness and health books, DVDs, and also lots of homemade baked goods! There is something for everyone here today!

100% of the proceeds from this auction will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.

I am running my 3rd half marathon May 30th 2010 and my husband, Eric and I are participating in our first try-a-tri triathlon on June 6th 2010. Our goal is to raise $2500 for cancer research in today’s Shop 4 A Cause 2, which would put our total charity money raised to $5,700.

This auction is in honour of our family members and friends who have fought cancer and also for everyone out there whose lives have been touched by cancer in some way.

This is a shorter torso tank top, Because I have a long torso I have a hard time with it riding up on me.

Sorry Ang,
I was totally going to put something in for this, but then we were stuck in a small town in Newfoundland where we only got about 10 mins of internet per day (talk about being left out from the outside world!!)

Congrats though, what an awesome accomplishment!
