ADRC Volunteer Spotlight: Cathy Speirs

by | May 28, 2024 | Blog, Volunteer

Hello beloved ADRC Magazine reader and welcome to another edition of “Our Volunteers are Amazing,” meet and greet! This month, we’re happy to introduce to you Cathy Speirs.

Cathy is one of our dedicated meal delivery drivers, delivering meals every Monday to about 20 individuals around downtown Green Bay. The best part of this is the wonderful people she has met. She said she often takes too long on her route because she talks too long with many of them and it is a joy and blessing to spend time with them.

She also volunteers with Make-A-Wish as a Wish Granter. She says it is an honor to be able to work with the critically-ill children and their families to discover their wishes and deliver those wishes to them – what an incredible organization!

In addition, she is also the Chairman/Race Director for Kickin’ It with the Cows, a 5K/10K run/walk and kids’ run benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She enjoys being a part of this event because it is humbling and heartwarming to watch hundreds of people join in support of desperately sick children and their families.

When Cathy is not volunteering, she is a loving grandma to three awesome grandchildren. Having retired four years ago, she likes to keep busy while her husband and oldest son manage their large dairy farm. She has one other son, a first-year medical student, and a daughter living in Canada – where Cathy and her family had moved from 21 years ago. Last but not least, they have a Boxer named Sammie.

Thank you so much, Cathy, for all of your amazing work with us and the community!
