In 2017, I trekked 100km in Iceland raising money and awareness for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Because of amazing people like you, I was able to raise almost $10,000.
The pandemic has seen an increase in cases of domestic violence and the shelters, like most charities right now, are struggling to raise much needed funds to keep their doors open. So on August 10th as I turn 47, I’m ditching the comforts of home to trek 100km through the Purcell Mountains in British Columbia. This trek will make Iceland look like a walk in the park. Everything we need for the trek we will have to carry in including our food and shelter all the while we don’t run into any grizzlies.
But as challenging as it will be, it pales in comparison to what some women and children face every single day.Home should be a safe place for everyone and with your help, we can make a difference.
All trek related costs are paid for by me and 100% of what I raise will go directly where it needs to go… back into our community to make it safer for everyone.80% will go to The Phoenix Place and The Interval House in Hamilton. The other 20% goes to federal initiatives to help break the cycle of violence.
To date, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has raised over $35 million dollars since its inception, helping over 200 shelters across Canada. It is one of Canada’s largest private charities and one where 100 % of your donation goes where it should…
