Hi Family and Friends,

I wanted to share some awesome news with you! I am running in the Acera Insurance Run for L'Arche in April, and I need your support. 

L’Arche Calgary is a non-profit organization that supports people with developmental disabilities, providing them with a community of belonging! L'Arche Calgary has five homes and two programs where people with and without disabilities live and experience life along-side each other in a spirit of togetherness and mutuality. The Acera Insurance Run for L'Arche is an annual run that helps further their work in their community and larger society! We want our neighbors and friends with developmental disabilities to know that they are loved and a valuable part of our city! 

I have joined the mission to create a more compassionate world. Are you in? Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $XXX. And please don't hesitate to spread the word! Every donation, big or small, makes a huge difference!

You can support my run by clicking this link and donating (insert your link).
I'd also love to see you at the run on Saturday, April 6th, 2024 cheering me on, or even running alongside me!

Thank you for your support!!

Sincerely,
XXX
