Art Wilson Continues to Raise Money at 91
Cambridge - United Way has many loyal contributors and vocal advocates in the community, but
few are as dedicated as Art Wilson. Celebrating his birthday, turning 91 years young on Oct.
3rd, he is a stalwart supporter of United Way and the change that is possible in the
community if people get involved.
This year, Art Wilson made a personal donation of $1,000 at the United Way
campaign kickoff on September 17th to inspire others in the community to donate whatever
they could to improve the lives of others in the community.
Having raised over $55,000 for United Way of Cambridge and North Dumfries over
the past decade, and climbing to the top of the CN Tower several times (after surviving two
knee replacements and cancer) he continues to solicit for donations at his old training
ground, the YMCA of Cambridge.
For two weeks in September and October Art spent his days greeting those coming
into the YMCA Cambridge, and asking local residents for donations to support the most
vulnerable among us. He exemplifies the United Way call to action: Give. Volunteer. Act.
