About  Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation
 
 
Our mission
Our mission is to provide financial assistance to women/men facing breast cancer in order to make their fight with the cancer a little less challenging.
 
How do we raise funds ?
The “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Snow Run” holds an annual snowmobile ride, primarily for women. Our first adventure in Quebec was in March of 2006. The funds are provided through our participants’ fundraising and our sponsors. The 7th edition of the “Randonnée des Neiges” will take place in Sherbrooke, on Saturday February 11th 2011.
 
History
In the prime of her life, things could not have seemed any better. Kelly Shires, at 34 was happily married, was expecting her first child and was a successful business owner. What more could she ask for - the future was looking bright! Then tragedy struck, Christmas of 1996 Kelly found a lump on her breast. She immediately had it looked at to learn that she had breast cancer. Kelly was faced with continuous surgeries, the termination of her pregnancy, the loss of their business and ongoing chemotherapy.
 
Through those years and facing many challenges, Kelly had proven to be a very strong woman with a big heart. Her experiences had given her a new outlook on life and she decided that she wanted to help others diagnosed with breast cancer that may be facing many of the same challenges!
 
The idea to develop a Trust Fund to assist patients with breast cancer all started from a conversation with a great friend. The concept was born and the planning for the First Annual Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Snow Run For Fun was underway. The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Snow Run For Fun is a snowmobile ride, which raises money for The Snow Run Trust Fund. This Trust Fund has been set up to assist newly diagnosed women with expenses that extended health care programs do not cover. Kelly wanted the fundraiser to have the theme of “Women helping Women” which seemed to be a perfect fit with the sport of snowmobiling as Kelly was an avid snowmobiler and the numbers of female snowmobilers continues to climb.
 
The first Snow Run was held in early 2000, in Ontario, and today we are proud to hold our 12th event in Ontario. Kelly’s dream to hold events in other Canadian provinces was realized in March of 2006 with our first Quebec event. In 2007 the foundation surpassed one million dollars in funds raised.
