Several BRIGHT Run folks were in the crowd January 27 at the “Love Life” Valentine’s dinner and dance at the Verdi Convention Centre in Mississauga.

The first annual event was organized by Jassie Dhanoa, who created the Craving the Cure Foundation late last year.

The evening of food, fun and entertainment was a fundraiser for breast cancer research funded through the BRIGHT Run.

Jassie says she was inspired to create the event after meeting breast cancer survivor Navneet Sharma, who participated in her first BRIGHT Run last September. Jassie’s best friend was also diagnosed with breast cancer recently.

The BRIGHT Run thanks you, Jassie, as well as all who participated.
