Welcome to my Ecuador Challenge for Shelter fundraising page!

As a Realtor my purpose is to find people a home. Sadly on any given night close to 6,000 women and children are fleeing their home to find refuge in an emergency shelter because home is not a safe place for them. And hundreds are turned away because there is no space for them. 

Locally, our Three Oaks Foundation has been providing safe shelter for women and children since 1983. Thanks to support like yours, each year they are able to house nearly twice as many fleeing domestic violence as their funding allows for.

Women’s shelters across Canada need our support now more than ever to fund their life-saving and life-changing work. As we emerge from the COVID pandemic, shelters across the country are reporting rising rates of domestic violence and more women than ever who are reaching out for help. While most of our lives have returned to normal, there are women and children in all corners of the country who are now fleeing the danger within their homes and working to rebuild their future after experiencing domestic violence. 

I plan to help and I hope you will join me in making a difference!

In November 2023, I will be heading to Ecuador to trek 5 days towards one of the highest active volcanoes in the world! During this high-altitude adventure, I will be hiking long days across varied terrain in unpredictable mountain weather. I will be once again camping in a tent and going without cell service, electricity, bathroom facilities and other comforts of home. This trek will not be easy (I fear it will be the hardest yet) but of course it will be immensely worthwhile. Each step I take and every dollar I raise will support courageous women and children in my community who are seeking safety and hope for a life free from abuse. 

Many have supported me in the past with my Sahara & Rocky Mountain Treks but I ask you once again to please click the SPONSOR ME link near the bottom of this page to help me reach my fundraising goal.
