Welcome to my Ecuador Challenge for Shelter fundraising page!

Women’s shelters in 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’ll be camping in a tent and going without cell service, electricity, bathroom facilities and other comforts of home. This trek will not be easy but 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.

The trek costs and flights are 100% self funded. 100% of your donations go directly to the Shelter Foundation; with 80% staying local to Winninpeg; Bravestone Inc. and the remainder to violence prevention programs across Canada. 

With the help from my husband Jon and campaign manager, my father in-law Gary I hope to meet my fundraising goal. 

Please click the SPONSOR ME link near the bottom of this page to help me reach my fundraising goal. 

I am so grateful for your support!
