Welcome to Peggy's Cancervive Fundraising Page!
My involvement with Cancervive started in the fall of 2008 but I have been working closely with Wellspring Calgary since their start-up a few years prior to starting with Cancervive.
At the end of last year, I stepped away from my General Manager role with Cancervive and took on a full-time position with Wellspring Calgary. I am still involved with Cancervive as one of their board members and on the logistics committee. I look forward to participating this year as a rider. Guess I have a lot of training to do but I am excited to join the other riders on the road in September.
This year our ride starts at Wellspring Calgary's Fountain Court location in the SE and will see us travelling to High River, Kananaskis, Canmore and Banff, and along the David Thompson Highway to Rocky Mountain House, Water Valley, Cochrane and back to Calgary for our arrival at Carma House. We will be on the road for 6 days/5 nights with a total distance around 600km (approximately). I would appreciate your support in this personal challenge I’m taking on!
Why am I doing this? To support people living with cancer who are helped by Wellspring Calgary! Here’s an alarming statistic -- 43 people a day are diagnosed with cancer in Alberta. While medical treatment works to improve the condition, there are so many after effects of cancer and its treatment that can cause changes to one’s body, mind and emotional health. Wellspring is the only centre of its kind in western Canada that addresses the non-medical needs that a cancer diagnosis can bring. Over 500 people accessed Wellspring Calgary's services for the first time last year! And just $150 will provide free resources, support and programs for one member for one month!
Every dollar makes a difference in the life of someone living with cancer. Please consider supporting my efforts to ensure no one has to face cancer alone!
Thank you in advance! I look forward to sharing stories and pictures of my incredible journey with you!
