On Sunday, May 31st, Team Aspen will be participating in the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon! Last year, Team Aspen had nearly 90 runners and walkers take part in the event, not to mention all of the cheerleaders we had at our cheer station! Thanks to Team Aspen and our generous supporters, we raised over $10,000 to improve the lives of individuals and families currently experiencing poverty in our city.
Team Aspen has set two goals for the 2020 Calgary Marathon - have a team of 75 people and raise $20,000 dollars!
One of the funds that Team Aspen will be supporting is Aspen's Flexible Wellness Fund. This fund was developed to cover costs for items and experiences that aren't always affordable for families living in poverty but are undeniably meaningful to the people that Aspen works with. To date this fund has provided many wellness opportunities including a McDonalds birthday party for a six year old boy, outfitting a youth for her first summer camp adventure and allowing for a grieving mother to receive a much needed massage.
