TPI Associate Runs 60k and Raises over $3.5k
08/08/2006 - Travel Professionals International

"It's an amazing experience," exclaimed Maureen Rose, a TPI Associate from Calgary, Alberta, and proud participant in this year's The Weekend to End Breast Cancer, also in Calgary. Having her mother pass away from breast cancer in 1999, Maureen has been active in pursuing a cure to the cancer ever since, which is diagnosed in 22,000 Canadian women per year (one in every nine Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer) and causes over 5,300 deaths per year, according to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Maureen, a 2006 Gold level Associate in TPI's Velocity program recognizing sales and training achievements, understands the desire and fulfills the need to have success in both her professional life and within her own person. While being a top performer with TPI, Maureen was also able to perform well in reaching her fundraising goals, exceeding her target level by over $500.

"TPI Associates and staff contributed toward my fundraising and sent words of encouragement," said Maureen, while donations also came pouring in from over "60 family members, friends, and colleagues from across Canada, the UK, Norway, and the US."

With Maureen raising over $3500 toward the Alberta Cancer Foundation (the beneficiary of the Weekend in Alberta), the entire Calgary group raised over $6 million dollars. The Weekend to End Breast Cancer also takes place in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal each year, with more information available at http://www.endcancer.ca/.
