Terry Fox Run Results for 2016!

Terry Fox Run 2016
L to R: Jenny Dundas, Carrie Illsley, Krystal Mercer, Ivy Bojmic & Michelle Mercer

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!

With gratitude,

A Word From Tri Psi’s Christine Calhoun

Niagara Falls - American Falls

American Falls at Niagara Falls

Dear DDD Alumnae,

The deadline to book your hotel room for the Tri Psi Convention is September 12, although the hotel will honour the rate if they have rooms available. We are hoping that more ladies from your chapter will attend because we know it will be great!

The Millennium Hotel has free parking and is right beside the Walden Galleria Mall. There are lots of shops and restaurants. There is a Panera Bread and an Olive Garden restaurant across the street. The hotel is creating a $6 breakfast special just for our group, at the restaurant in the hotel. They are happy to have us there.

We have a trip planned for Friday afternoon to see the new waterfront of Buffalo, many beautiful buildings and the Niagara State Park. There you will find the Maid of the Mist, an IMAX theatre and beautiful scenery. Niagara Falls, the seventh wonder of the world is close by.  Our dinner will include an informal setting with a spectacular view of the falls. We will be treated to a special musical and theatrical presentation. The creator of the show is a Canadian and will bring the SHOW to us ….. away from its regular venue. Hopefully, there will be fireworks to finish with.

The Saturday banquet will be in the hotel restaurant The Walden. We will have the entire room which overlooks an area of greenery. This is where the pool is and the courtyard rooms with balconies. Our guest speaker will be a member of the Tri Delta Buffalo Alumnae Chapter, Kathy Massie. She has held numerous DDD volunteer positions and will be interesting to listen to. We are still working on some musical entertainment.

We will culminate our time together with the Violet Brunch on Sunday morning. We hope to be joined by Delta daughters.

Thanks for registering as soon as possible. Please click HERE for all of the details, and pass the info on to the rest of your Tri Delta friends. We look forward to seeing you, and to having a special and memorable time!
Tri Psi Love,

Christine Calhoun

Dearest Deltas,

The deadline to register for Tri Psi Convention is next week! I hope you’ll consider joining us for all or part of the weekend. I will be there and am looking forward to meeting up with other Tri Delta sisters. 🙂

A meaningful mother-daughter weekend. A fun-filled girls’ shopping trip. A romantic Niagara Falls getaway. The planned activities and discounted hotel rate lend themselves nicely to any of these options. For more details, please click HERE.

Dear Tri Delta Sisters,

For the third consecutive year, the Tri Delta Toronto Alum Chapter is proudly supporting The Terry Fox Foundation in its ongoing work to fund innovative and progressive cancer research programs by taking part in the Terry Fox Run in less than two weeks!

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. The Terry Fox Run is accessible to everyone! It is one of the only charitable runs that requires no entry fee or minimum donation amount. Also, participants can choose from different sites and distances, and many of the locations are wheelchair accessible.

To learn more about this amazing event, go to our Run page:

To find out more about how our team will be participating this year, read our previous post:

With Delta love & gratitude,
