Terry Fox Run – September 17, 2017
Do you have any plans on Sunday, September 17, 2017? Well, you do now! You’re invited to join the Tri Delta Toronto Alum Chapter team for the #TerryFoxRun! For the fourth consecutive year, our chapter is participating in this important annual tradition.
Since the early 1970s, Tri Delta’s chosen philanthropy has been Children’s Cancer Charities. The Terry Fox Run allows us to support this cause in a Canadian context.
… and your family and your friends! There’s no registration fee and you can choose from over 900 Run sites across Canada. If you’d like to meet up with our core group, we are gathering in the parking lot at Mooredale (146 Crescent Road) at 10 a.m. This site was chosen because it is a central location in a beautiful neighbourhood that is TTC accessible, i.e. close to Rosedale Subway Station. We’d love for you to join us – sporting Tri Delta colours/letters, of course!
Haven’t laced up your running shoes all summer? No worries! Our core group does a 5 km walk, so it’s easy to catch up with sisters while enjoying some light exercise. However, if a 10 km ravine run is more your speed, that’s certainly an option for you!
Our Team goal is to raise $1500. Set a lofty personal goal and challenge family, friends and co-workers to match your donation. Your personal fundraising page makes it easy to recruit friends and thank sponsors.
If you can’t join us at the Run, then please sponsor us today! Do it now while it’s top of mind. It only takes two minutes on our page at http://www.terryfox.ca/torontotridelta. (Note that is it http and not https.) And while you’re there, don’t forget to leave us an encouraging message in the Our Supporters section at the bottom.
Thanks for your registration and/or donation! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing you on September 17th!
With gratitude & Delta love,
Tri Delta Toronto AC Team Captain

Toronto Tri Delta Alumnae at Tri Psi Convention
It was an eventful four days in Buffalo that included plenty of sisterhood – with a side of shopping! The 93rd International Tri Psi Convention took place from October 13-16, 2016 at the Millennium Hotel, next to the Walden Galleria Mall.
Organized by the Toronto Tri Psis with Christine Calhoun at the helm, the conference appeared to adopt a similar theme to Tri Delta’s 2016 Convention: “Legislate. Celebrate.” Some of the changes the Tri Psis ratified include replacing their annual gathering with a biennial one and creating the new council position of Membership Director. Plus, International Tri Psi President Olive Jeejeebhoy passed the gavel to fellow Canadian Christine Calhoun, keeping the sorority’s leadership in our Toronto family!
While the Tri Psis were legislating, the guests were celebrating all that Buffalo has to offer. We were treated to tours of Forest Lawn Cemetery and the Darwin D. Martin House Complex. The former is the “permanent home” of illustrious residents like U.S. President Millard Fillmore (and musician Rick James!), while the latter was designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The Tri Psis later joined us for a walking tour of the Canalside District, some free time in Niagara Falls State Park, plus dinner and musical entertainment at Top of the Falls Restaurant.
The Tri Deltas in attendance serenaded the other guests with DDD songs at the Saturday night banquet. However, the real highlight of the evening was a heartfelt speech given by Tri Delta and Tri Psi Kathy Massie. Kathy has previously served as DDD’s National Panhellenic Conference Delegate and is currently an NPC Release Figure Method Specialist for formal recruitment. On Sunday, Tri Psis and Tri Deltas concluded the Convention with the Violet Brunch.
The Canada Alpha Chapter of Tri Psi was well-represented by Cindy Blundell, Christine Calhoun, Jocette Illsley, Olive Jeejeebhoy, Sara Joyce, Georgina Klassen, Jeanine Macario, Fuza Majid, Michelle Mercer, Judy Pownall and Doreen Sherk.
In addition to Michelle and Judy, Toronto Alumnae Chapter members in attendance were Sarah Atteck, Katie Blundell, Caitlin Calhoun, Jessica Calhoun, Carrie Illsley, Carly Klassen, Carmelina Macario, Elizabeth Melo, Krystal Mercer, Barbara Morrison and Ashley Pivko.
And we can’t forget our Tri Delta dads and Tri Psi husbands, lovingly known as “Tri Psicles”: Thomas Calhoun, Khush Jeejeebhoy, John Klassen, John Pownall and Gordon Sherk!
Congrats to Christine and her team for an amazing weekend! We hope you’ll consider joining us at future Tri Psi Conventions.
Past President, Toronto Alumnae Chapter
Just a quick reminder that next Thursday, October 20th, is the New Member and Alumnae Meet and Greet at the chapter house from 7-9pm. The collegiate chapter has welcomed 15 new girls this fall through recruitment and they are so excited to meet our alum members next week! We will be playing some games, there will be a few group activities, and of course food to enjoy. It would be wonderful to see a bunch of alum out there so if you are able to make it please swing by!
Please RSVP to this post in the comment section.
Looking forward to seeing you at the event next Thursday!
Come enjoy a night of pancakes and sisterhood, and meet some of the newest members of the collegiate chapter!
Thanks to everyone who supported the Tri Delta Toronto Alum Chapter team in the 2016 Terry Fox Run! The generosity of our donors made it possible for us to raise 121% of our $1200 goal, i.e. $1450! Amazing!
Special thanks to Michelle Mercer for taking over as captain when I was invited to attend a friend’s wedding brunch. Michelle was our top fundraiser, bringing in $620 in donations! Woo hoo!
Also worth noting is the participation of Carrie Illsley’s life partner Colin Watson. The brave Colin was the group photographer and our token male this year. 🙂
Look for a more detailed report in the next Toronto Tri Delta Tribune!
