Introducing the 2012 Run Directors

​We’d like to be the first to introduce you to this year’s Run Directors in Atlantic Canada! Run Directors are local Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation representatives in the community who provide the motivational and organizational leadership for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure to their local committee. Some fun facts about these Run Directors include:

Erin Docherty loves scary movies, pineapple pizza, and a hot summer day spent on a boat. She hates white socks.

Leone Dixon grew up showing sheep and cattle through 4-H. She also lived and volunteered in Cuba for a month.

Meagan Turbide’s summer hobby is walking on the beach and collecting beach glass.
Dale Aube is a stay-at-home mom of two young, busy kids.  She begs for some quiet time and when that chance rarely comes along, she’s bored and begs them to come back home.

Stephanie Hale will be attempting to run the half-marathon in the Bluenose prior to turning 40 this year!

Suzanne Stewart and her husband celebrated their 25th anniversary the day after the 2011 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. On January 26, 2012, she left for a three week Hawaiian vacation. She says, “It’s definitely a great place to ‘hang loose’.”

Peggy Weir just returned from Mexico where she explored the Mayan Ruins, zip-lined through the jungle, repelled down into a cenote and swam in the underground river!
