Fast Pitch Calgary Finalists prepping for their 3 minute Speech!
For the past two months the Branch Out Neurological Foundation has been a part of a spectacular program called Fast Pitch Calgary. No, not a sporting event, although just as competitive and making waves across the non-profit community!
The event is put on by Social Venture Partners Calgary, a group dedicated to bringing together individuals interested in philanthropy and social change within Calgary…best karma ever!?
I know I know, What is Fast Pitch it already!!
Fast Pitch is a two-month program, which consists of training and mentoring for innovative non-profits that are effecting social change in Calgary.

Secondly, I see how hard they work, how passionate they are about the foundation and their efforts to make change. Their inspiration makes Branch Out an important cause for many of us.Read more
