Martell Hope Builders had another awesome experience at CIBC’s Run For The Cure on Sunday, Sept 30th. It was a bit rainy, but spirits were bright! Centennial Park was the place to be in Moncton, as our community enthusiastically showed their support.This annual event raises awareness (and funds) for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. While kilts and uniforms were spotted, pink definitely dominated the fashion scene!
All in all, our team raised $2856.00 for the Cure. Check out some pics from the day below:
Here at Martell Homes we are getting ready for the CIBC Run for the Cure happening on September 30th! And we want you! That’s right, we want you on our team as we run to end breast cancer.
Now, you may be saying “Yeahhh but I don’t run!”.. and that’s okay for 2 reasons!. 1) You don’t have to run when you’re doing the Run for the Cure, you can walk! and 2) We’re here to give you some tips so that you can!
Here are our top 5 tips on how to run better:
1. Be the Turtle When Training – While we all get a little excited when we start something new it’s really important when running to start conservatively and allow yourself to progress. The danger is that if you start too aggressively you can set yourself up for some less than desireble injuries. Try adding 10% to your run every week for the first three weeks and then back off a bit (20%) for the following week.
2. Treat Your Feet – Having the proper footwear is essential. We’ve all done it, we’ve gone to the store and bought new runners without actually getting them to properly size and evaluate our feet needs. Take your time when you go to get your runners and make sure that you have the absolute best fit and shoe to help you avoid running injuries.
3. Bring a Friend: There’s nothing like having someone there beside you to keep you motivated, entertained, and engaged. Bring someone along who you know will support you and encourage you in your goal. Having someone also makes you more likely to keep up your running schedule because you’re less likely to make excuses not to run if you know someone is depending on you.
4. Keep Your Gear Ready – Always have your running gear (clothes, shoes, water, watch) ready in a bag so that any time you have a burst of energy or motivation you can take advantage of it without getting slowed down by prep.
5. Enter Races – Races give you a goal which will make you more focused and motivated to push yourself to be the best you can be. The CIBC Run for the Cure is the perfect opportunity for you to set a goal and work towards it. If you’re interested in joining (or supporting) or Martell Homes team check out our donation page here!

The CIBC Run for the Cure is a special project that Martell has also been proud to support.
