The Calgary Chapter of the CCFC (Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of Canada) just shared the 2006 Award of Excellence for their fantastic work this year towards finding a cure for IBD (inflammatory bowel disease). I’m so proud of every one of us who volunteers – Congrats, comrades! We’re getting closer and closer to making these diseases extinct.
From the speech at the ceremony:
“What is the magic ingredient within this Chapter that has made so much possible? It is its volunteers. They embody the words of Margaret Mead,“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Calgary Chapter’s volunteers’ passion and endeavours uplift our spirit. By giving freely of their time, ideas and skills today, we can hope for a tomorrow free of pain and suffering.”
