Premier salesperson Jodi Douglas from the Manurewa office is creating awareness for breast cancer in her quest to run the New York City Marathon on 7 November 2010. Jodi has been training for the last six months in a continued program that has seen her running individual distances of up to 30 kilometres a week and having a weekly regime which has seen her dedicate 25 hours per week to achieve the level of fitness required to run in the marathon.
Her sponsors have been numerous and have assisted Jodi in being able to travel to New York; but her main aim is to raise funds for the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation. Jodi said that she has been overwhelmed by the positive response from the public in campaigning for the early detection of breast cancer. She said that “People have been very open to discussing with me the early detection programme and also many personal stories of family and friends who have been in some way associated with breast cancer.”
The statistics speak louder than words, with one in nine New Zealand women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer is something that does not discriminate against age or race; it is unfortunately something that many women will live with during their lives.
