Events / Exercise Daily / Healthy Eating - The part I have loved about the challenge this year is I’m not alone. Last year being the only one in the limelight was a bit daunting.  This year I’ve been joined by my sister Brenda and several of my Prevent Cancer Foundation co-workers, who have accepted their own challenge of making healthier diet decisions and of including exercise in their daily routine.
