Purple Community Angel

We appreciate all of our volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to Purple Community — we couldn’t do it without you! Each quarter the Purple Community Team highlights a volunteer who has gone above and beyond their call of duty as our quarterly Purple Community Angel. 

Congratulations to our Purple Community Angel of the quarter — Rorybeth Novosad!

Rorybeth first became involved with Van Andel Institute Purple Community in 2017, when she ran as a Road Warrior for the Fifth Third Riverbank Run (now the Amway Riverbank Run). Rorybeth became more involved with Purple Community when she created a successful basketball fundraiser at West Catholic High School. She also has volunteered at many events, is a member of the Purple Community 5K Committee and Purple Community Executive Cabinet, and ran the Bank of America Chicago Marathon this past fall for Van Andel Institute Purple Community Team Hope!
