Tri Deltas at TFR 2017: Carly Klassen, Jenny Dundas, Krystal Mercer, Michelle Mercer & Carrie Illsley

For the fourth consecutive year, members of the Tri Delta Toronto Alumnae Chapter proudly participated in the Terry Fox Run on Sunday, September 17, 2017.

Our enthusiastic team consisted of Carly Klassen, Carrie Illsley, Colin Watson, Jenny Dundas, Krystal Mercer and Michelle Mercer.

Thanks to our sponsors, we raised $1716, or 114% of our $1500 goal! We couldn’t have done it without the generosity of family, friends, and the following Tri Deltas and Tri Psis: Arlene Chan, Carmelina Macario, Corinne Winnel, Eleanor MacLean, Elizabeth Melo, Georgina Klassen, Jena Crone, Joan Lockhart, Jocette Illsley, Laura Knapp, Nancy Gahm and Susan Weston.

Once again, Michelle Mercer was our top fundraiser and Carrie’s partner Colin Watson was our token male. Congrats, Michelle! Thanks for joining us, Colin!

This is the only alumnae fundraising activity that takes our chapter out into the community, both in terms of sponsorship (collecting from non-members) and visibility (wearing our letters). So mark your calendar and join us for the next Terry Fox Run on Sunday, September 16, 2018!

With gratitude & Delta love,

As a child, I was taught about Terry Fox’s incredible Marathon of Hope, and participated in the #TerryFoxRun at school every September. As an adult, I’m proud to continue that legacy with my Tri Delta sisters!

Terry famously said “Somewhere the hurting must stop.” With every step, with every dollar we get closer to finding a cure for cancer. I very much hope you will consider joining or sponsoring the Toronto Alumnae Chapter in support of our effort. 

Bring you, bring your family, bring your friends to the #TerryFoxRun on Sunday, September 17th! Starting at 10 a.m., our core group will be completing a 5 km walk at the Mooredale location. You’re welcome to join us, or create your own challenge at any participating location. For more information or to donate, check out our team page at http://www.terryfox.ca/torontotridelta or read our previous post at http://torontotridelta.ca/2017/08/13/bring-you-to-terryfoxrun-2017/.

Everyone knows someone who has battled this terrible disease, so supporting The Terry Fox Foundation in its ongoing work is a very personal act. Whom will you honour or remember on September 17th?

With gratitude & Delta love,

Carly Klassen

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.

Bring You

… 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!

Be Brave

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!

Be Bold

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.

Be Kind

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,

Carly Klassen
