Cash, Sweat & Tears Canada Award 2015

2015 Cash Sweat & Tears Canada Award Winner: Lovisa McCallumr

Lovisa & teamLovisa McCallum, a tireless volunteer who has raised more than $285,000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, is the winner of the inaugural Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Canada Cash, Sweat & Tears Award.

The award honors an extraordinary volunteer who has taken on physical challenges or overcome tremendous obstacles to raise money for charity — and McCallum’s consistent work on behalf of CARSTAR’s Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis Canada over the past decade is truly extraordinary.

“I’m deeply honored and surprised and a bit awed that someone noticed,” McCallum said. “I’ve never done this for recognition or honors. It’s something I do because I want to help make a difference and find a cure for this disease.”

During the past 11 years, she has raised $285,000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. In 2015 alone, she raised close to $45,000 — and she has been the charity’s top individual fundraiser for several years.

That figure does not include the additional $245,000 in sponsorship revenue that she has helped secure through her work as director of the financial products group with the Bank of Montreal. Through her leadership, the bank has been a presenting sponsor at the Toronto location of the walk for the past 8 years

Lovisa is a true champion for the cause. In addition to her work as a peer-to-peer fundraiser, she is also an exemplary volunteer — serving as the President of the Toronto & District Chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, as well as several other committees.
