(London, Ontario) – Fanshawe Athletics announced today that, in support of the OneRun Foundation, its staff and student-athletes raised and donated over $3,400 for this year's event. On June 13th, Theresa Carriere once again completed the 100 km run from Sarnia to London in an effort to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

Carriere, who is the Falcons Women's Basketball Assistant Coach, started OneRun in 2010 to address the need for further breast cancer research and awareness in the community. This year marked Carriere's third time running the 100 km route.

Nathan McFadden, Manager of Athletics, stated that "we are so proud to have people like Theresa and Bill Carriere as part of our Fanshawe Athletics Program. Their personal commitment to the London community is extraordinary and is a perfect fit for Fanshawe Athletics as community is one of our core values. Theresa's strong character and courage are well documented but she still never ceases to amaze or inspire. Ultimately, our student-athletes are the benefactor of not only great coaching, but exceptional character and leadership. We were thrilled to be a part of this remarkable event".

The OneRun organization has raised over $165,000 so far this year and the majority of those donations will stay in London and be donated to the patient assistance program at London Health Sciences Foundation to help patients and families as well as the St. Joseph's Hospital cancer patient programs.
