We are walking for Georgia Margaret Gass (Margie) who passed away May 11 2015. She loved life, her family and friends and the South Shore of Nova Scotia where she and her family have a beautiful home. Despite a career in the foreign service which took her to Europe, Africa and Asia and frequent stays in New York, she remained deeply grounded in Nova Scotia. She was an irresistible friend who kept in touch with a worldwide network. She loved the arts and hooked rugs, painted and made beautiful photographs. She acted and had an incredible dress sense. She was beautiful. Margie was also courageous and she fought back. Together with her friend Evelyne, she organized a fundraiser for ovarian cancer in Halifax which raised $100,000. Margie was a "doer" and enjoyed everything that life had to offer. We are walking in her memory and to honour her desire to help women with ovarian cancer learn earlier that they have the disease and live longer.
Please provide your support by giving generously! Last year we raised $6,665 which made us 3rd in fundraising for the Ottawa walk and was our all time best since we began walking. Our goal this year is $8,000. We would also be happy to have you join us by walking with Margie's Gang for the 5th consecutive year!
