For the second year in a row, lawyers from the MLT Aikins Winnipeg office will serve as coaches for the Winnipeg Foundation’s Fast Pitch competition.
Throughout the 10-week coaching program, Peter Anandranistakis, Florence Carey and Brad Zander will each work with a leader from one of the 15 participating charitable/not-for-profit organizations.
Update: Peter will serve as a coach for Friends of Upper Fort Garry; Florence will work with West Central Women’s Resource Centre (WCWRC), and Brad has been paired with Agape Table.
In addition to helping the organizations share their stories in a compelling way, the Fast Pitch program seeks to build and strengthen relationships between Winnipeg’s charitable sector and its legal, financial and business communities.
