Marcy also had the opportunity to follow Bomber fans to two Grey Cups, visited flooded out areas all over the province and won a Gabriel Award in 2012 for hosting a CBC Radio One special titled, Resolve. Marcy is the 2016 recipient of the YMCA-YWCA Winnipeg Women of Distinction in Public Relations and Communications.
