We Love You Connie Foundation
The We Love You Connie Foundation has had an incredibly successful year raising funds and awareness for a cause that is close to the founders’ hearts. The response within the community has been incredibly touching. After taking part in the Ride to Conquer Cancer for 10 years, Marco Guglietti, co-founder of the We Love You Connie Foundation, along with his wife, Michela, and his three brothers were inspired to create their own inaugural cycling event to help. “Our original goal was to have 50 riders, ride 50 kilometres and raise $50,000. We ended up having 80 riders still ride 50 km, but raise $175,000,” says Guglietti. “Our foundation was also chosen as the charity to receive the funds raised this year at Masters Insurance Limited’s yearly golf tournament — a big thank-you to the Ciccolini and Corby families.” This recognition within the community further strengthens the support and funds that will be allocated to help better care for, research and search for a cure to diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG).
