Hello Lewy Warriors!
We're doing the June update a bit early this month due to some previous plans next week. We're so happy to announce that we've surpassed our second donation goal... we've raised $20,861!!! WOW. That's not even the final quarterly amount either, as the deposit from Bob's Trust has yet to be included. We will post an amendment to the total next week when we have the final numbers.
We can't believe that we've already reached our year end goal. We couldn't do it without the help and support of our community. I know I sound like a broken record but it is amazing that we have been able to raise that much in less than two years. The money, as you know, goes directly to Dr. Pasternak and his team's research into Lewy Body Dementia. We're hoping that we will be able to share more information soon regarding what he has actually been doing but the pandemic has, as always, muddled up our plans.
If you follow our Facebook, you would have seen that we unfortunately suffered some technical difficulties this month so we are running a bit behind with everything but we have tons of stuff planned for July and August. Very soon you will be able to browse the amazing merchandise we've been designing and, hopefully, we will be able to share some actual dates with you for in-person events in the fall.
It's been an amazing year so far and we can't wait to see what happens next. Thank you again.
And just a reminder to everyone, the more vaccines that are administered, the closer we are to getting back to normal. If you need information on vaccines or want to book yours, check out the Region of Waterloo website. Click here to learn more.
Have a great weekend.
