Hello Conquerors!

It was a busy month for TCC members out in our community. Part of our mission at TCC is to work cooperatively with other local support organizations to help those dealing with the challenges of a cancer diagnosis. First, we were honored to be asked by TMC to host an informational table at their Living with Cancer Symposium and to lead a Stretch and Balance class for the conference participants. Then it was off to the Rodeo to model in the Chicks and Chaps Fashion Show to benefit the Arizona Oncology Foundation. We are so happy to be a part of so many amazing organizations doing great things for survivors and their families. Thanks to all who participated!

The Cancer Conquerors also teamed up with the American Cancer Society and the University of Arizona Women’s Gymnastics and Basketball teams to honor all cancer survivors on Pink Night! TCC member and Arizona Athletics alumni Rocky LaRose was honorary team captain and spoke on behalf of survivors everywhere.

Well we weren’t done yet…. after a stop off at Kendra Scott for our TCC Kendra Gives Back night we headed over to North for social hour. Much of what makes TCC unique is the social connection and support our members share. Not only was it a great time for us all to catch up – we also got to celebrate Chef Ken’s Birthday. Happy Birthday Chef!

To keep members up on all the best ways to stay healthy, we hold a quarterly educational breakfast program. This month we were fortunate to have John Woolf, a licensed physical therapist and sports trainer, speak to us on the “5 simple steps to a more active lifestyle.” The morning was educational, inspirational, and fun – thanks John!

All of our TCC programs would not be possible without our community partners. A heartfelt thank you to the owners of Arbuckles' Coffee, Denny and Pat Willis, for hosting our Community Open House Courtyard Coffee Café. “Arbuckles', The Coffee That Won the West” is a family owned and operated business since 1974.
The Willis Family brought Arbuckles' Coffee to Tucson, Arizona in 1979 from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and continue to carry on the Arbuckle Brothers’ tradition of roasting and distributing world-class coffees.
Within three generations, the Willis family have perfected the sourcing of quality coffees and teas to satisfy the independent food service operators and their elite clientele, as well as individual web customers-- one cup at a time. We are so glad they are sharing their delicious coffee with us. Thank you, Denny and Pat!

Mark your calendars for March 16th and we’ll see you at the park!
