Mimi Conner, known as the fitness and swimming guru of the greater DFW area, wins the Fred Moses Minority Business Development Award last month. Humbled and honored by this prestigious award, Mimi decided to start a non-profit organization within her company, Aqua~Fit (AF Aquatics) Complete Family Wellness Center, called Ribbons For A Cause. When Mimi was looking for a keepsake piece of jewelry to celebrate her Breast Cancer survival anniversary, she was surprised at the lack of options around her. She teamed up with a local jeweler and created a stunning, personalized way to remember the struggles one endures with this scary diagnosis. Both Mimi and her husband are cancer survivors; Ribbons For A Cause was created to share this piece with you in order to help with awareness, memories and love. Funds are given to those struggling similar battles and unfortunate to win them alone and without help.
