  • Fundraising Achievement Unlocked!

    We did it! Thanks to the generosity of so many, including Taber Cares, who matched the donations that put me over the top today, I hit my $2,500 goal for my Tour Alberta for Cancer ride!

Between my own self-donation, a couple of timely contributions from folks in my network, and the equivalent matching donations, all those funds pushed me over the top!

    Of course, the fundraising doesn’t stop there. While reaching the $2,500 goal secures my participation in the in-person ride, I will certainly keep pushing to raise even more, as every dollar to the Alberta Cancer Foundation funds critical programs here in the province.
