Cindy Qu, manager of Clinical Nutrition and Diabetes Education for TMC, is a long-time supporter of the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona. This year she’s taking her support to new heights and will be going Over the Edge to raise money for the organization.
Qu, along with TMC’s Frank Marini and 78 other participants, will rappel down the 17 stories of 5151 E. Broadway Blvd. “Cindy is embodying the Girl Scout’s mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character; girls who make the world a better place, by modelling the courage and strength we hope to build in young girls in community,” said Julia Strange, vice president of TMC Community Benefit and a board member of the local Girl Scout council.
Until 24 hours ago Qu and Marini lead the Over the Edge fund-raising tally, when they were overtaken. While Marini still leads the pair, Qu has made headway and is now within $200 of Marini’s leading total. When asked if he was worried that Qu might topple him from his position on the fundraising total, Marini said, “I’m immensely proud of TMC’s representation at this event, and if a little competition between Cindy and me results in more programming for the Girl Scouts in our community then we’re all winners.”
All donations are 100 percent tax deductible and will support the Girl Scouts’ programming to more than 7,000 girls across Pima, Cochise, Santa Cruz, Greenlee, Graham and Yuma counties.
