Welcome to My Cancervive Fundraising Page!
Hi everyone and THANK YOU for visiting my page!!
I recently joined the Cancervive Cycle Tour challenge to raise funds for people living with cancer who are supported through Wellspring Calgary. For those that don't know, Wellspring is a network of community-based support centres offering programs and services that meet the emotional, social, practical and restorative needs of people living with cancer and those who care for them. All Wellspring programs, services & resources are offered free of charge and without referral. From my own recent cancer experience, I know how important Wellspring can be in one's life while managing a cancer diagnosis!!
I invite you to help me reach my fundraising goal as I participate in this 6-day, 610km cycling tour. We leave from Wellspring Calgary's Fountain Court location and ride through the Foothills, Kananaskis Country, Banff National Park, up to Rocky Mountain House, down to Cochrane, and ending at Wellspring Calgary's Carma House. I would really appreciate it if you would support me in this personal challenge!!
Why am I doing this? To support people living with cancer who are helped by Wellspring Calgary. Did you know 43 people a day are diagnosed with cancer in Alberta? In Calgary alone, 5 people a day may be seeking a place like Wellspring to support them during their cancer experience. While medical treatment is stellar, there are so many after effects of cancer and its treatment that cause changes to ones' body, mind and spirit health. Wellspring Calgary is the only centre of its kind in western Canada that addresses the non-medical needs and changes that a cancer diagnosis can bring. Over 500 people accessed Wellspring Calgary's services for the first time last year!! Just $150 will provide free resources, support and programs for one member for one month!!
Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of someone living with cancer. Will you support me in my efforts to have an impact on someone's life?
Thank you in advance! I look forward to sharing stories and pictures of my incredible journey with you!
