Volunteer Spotlight – Daniela Gomez

For the past two years, Daniela Gomez has been volunteering with our Dance Without Limits Program. She is currently serving as the Vice President of Events in our University of Alberta Student Group –  “Students for Life Without Limits” and is a graduate student in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Alberta. With aspirations to become a Pediatric Neurologist, she believes her experiences with the CPAA have helped her become a better-rounded individual and future physician. We truly appreciate Daniela’s enthusiasm and energy that she brings to our Dance Program – thank you Daniela!

“I’ve had the pleasure of meeting people of all abilities, and have been able share countless smiles and laughs with the children in the Dance Without Limits program” (Daniela Gomez)

Volunteer Spotlight – Annelize Foster

Annelize Foster is a beautiful example of how generosity of time and a kind heart can have a positive impact in the community. Annelize has been involved with the CPAA since 2014 volunteering at all our special events including the Life without Limits Gala, The Life without Limits Challenge, Casinos, golf tournaments and anything else we need.  She is an extremely devoted volunteer and quickly responds to say yes anytime she is asked for assistance.

Annelize is originally from South Africa and moved here in 2012. She currently works as an HR Coordinator for a software solutions company in Calgary. When asked about her commitment to volunteering Annelize responded “I don’t have the financial means to support organizations, but I can help by giving my time. I enjoy helping others, and being able to commit to a cause any way I can. I’ve learned a lot from CPAA staff and all the other volunteers. Being able to volunteer helps me just as much as it helps the organization.”

On behalf of the CPAA and our Calgary Volunteer Coordinator, Brandice, we thank Annelize for all she does!
