The sun was shining on Sunday, June 1, as many runners and walkers made their way through downtown Calgary to raise funds for the Women’s Centre. These dedicated folks collected more than $13,500 by participating in the annual Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Charity Challenge. This year, we were able to offer prizes for the individuals and the team who raised the most money.
The sweat has dried and the blisters have healed, which means it is time to say a huge THANK YOU to all runners, walkers and sponsors! We are so grateful for your energy, dedication and support. A special thank you goes to our volunteer, Monica, who was able to secure the grand prize from her employer, WestJet.
Congratulations to our prize winners! All winners have been contacted. They have been awarded according to the amount raised for the Women’s Centre. The Sole Sisters were the lucky winners of the team prize. Individual prizes have been awarded as follows:
- First place – Dany Allard: One voucher for a return trip* for two (2) people to any scheduled WestJet destination
- Second place – Bev Frizzell: One round-trip* for two (2) passengers in economy class seating between any two (2) points served by VIA Rail Canada Inc. between Edmonton and Jasper
- Third place – Dolly Ablitt: One ‘Spa Escape Renew’ gift certificate for a 90-minute facial and 120-minute manicure and pedicure at Swizzlesticks Salon & Spa
- Fourth place – Erika Jahn: A $100 gift card and handmade hair flower from Burlesque Burn
Finally, thank you to WestJet, VIA Rail Canada Inc., Swizzlesticks Salon & Spa, and Burlesque Burn for their generous contributions. This was the first year we have been able to offer prizes for participants and it was a great success!
