Purple Community Angel – Kathy Weglicki

Posted By

It would be difficult for someone to top the spunky spirit of Ms. Kathy Weglicki! Since she started volunteering in 2016, Kathy has been a reliable Purple Community volunteer season after season. She brings tremendous energy to every event she attends and serves enthusiastically on both the Consumers Credit Union Purple Community 5K planning committee and Events Subcommittee for our Purple Community Cabinet.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Kathy is also the founder of FEARLESS Flamingos, a cancer awareness group with more than 200 passionate members who participate in various 5K races while striving to raise awareness and funds to combat cancer.

Kathy’s favorite part of volunteering with Purple Community is the people, “I have met so many wonderful volunteers and friends at Van Andel Institute/Purple Community that make volunteering something that I look forward to — at each and every event. Seeing people working for others, so selflessly, is amazing!”

Kathy continuously lifts up our team with her cheerfulness in every message she sends, and with each smile she brings to the Institute. We look forward to seeing YOU at each and every event you volunteer for, Kathy. Thank you for your continued support of Van Andel Institute and Purple Community! We couldn’t do what we do without you!
