On Sunday, September 10, 2017, well over 200 of us came to North Glenmore Park and the Ovarian Cancer Walk of Hope in support of the Sauer family. Very well organized by Veronica Day (and many others who helped), Calgary AA, the Ringette Community, and friends and family came together wearing pink Team Jenna shirts or white hats to herald this important cause.
Dad, Leigh Sauer, gave a poignant and touching speech on behalf of his daughter Jenna and their story. It was a reminder to all of us how precious life is, and the hole left behind when we lose a member of our family and community. He reminded us that the hole should be filled with love, support and hope to one day find a cure. Mayor Nenshi also spoke about the importance of community and pulling together.
Thank you to everyone who came, supported or donated.
