Why are you a Foundation supporter?
I was first introduced to The Foundation of IAAP at an Illinois Division meeting when it was known as The Retirement Trust Foundation. I was interested in the work they did, and wanted to learn more about the organization.


I became the Golden Corridor Chapter Retirement Trust Foundation Chair and then Golden Corridor Chapter The Foundation of IAAP Chair 2009-2015, and have been fundraising for The Foundation of IAAP ever since.


I have been a Pacesetter for the years 2012, 2013, 2014, & 2015, and have participated in The Amazing Walk in 2013 (winning first place individual) and in The Amazing Ride in 2014 & 2015 (winning second place individual).

 

The Foundation of IAAP is a very worthwhile organization that provides educational opportunities as well as housing for those age 55 and over, and I am proud to be a part of the fundraising for this organization and proud to be a member of IAAP.
