There is room for more Volunteers at Fairview on Saturday!

In honor of our Centennial, GAAR is stepping up and has 2 ways you can Make a Difference this year!

1. Make a Difference at Fairview Cemetery on Saturday, October 23rd

Calling all REALTORS® & Affiliates for a morning clean-up in the Historic portion of the Fairview Cemetery. The cemetery is located on 17 1/2 acres and relies on volunteers each month to gather tumbleweeds and pick up trash. 

The Historic Fairview Cemetery is the oldest public cemetery in Albuquerque where many of the early founders of Albuquerque lie including Margaret Medler, the Association's first female president.

Invite your office, family & friends to help out so together we can make a difference.

2. Make a Difference promoting "Get Screened"

GAAR is partnering with Casa Esperanza and the American Cancer Society to promote "Get Screened" to our members who in turn can promote the initiative to their clients.

Why Your Help is Needed

COVID-19 was a significant disruptor to the long-term health and wellness of our community. The impact has been immediate. More than one-third of adults have not received their recommended screening tests during COVID-19. In the spring of 2020, screenings significantly decreased for breast, colorectal, and lung cancer. The long-term effects will be later stage diagnosis, more complicated incidence and treatment plans, increased healthcare costs, and greater mortality and morbidity. 

Ways You Can Help
  • Schedule your screenings
  • Talk to your family and friends
  • Promote screenings to your clients in your newsletters, emails, and social media
  • Promote the Get Screened Virtual Conference below:

Wednesday, October 20th from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Free to the public to attend
