In 2014 I had the opportunity to trek in Peru with fellow Royal LePage agents from across Canada.  Together we raised $500,000 for the Shelter Foundation.  The money raised went to local Women's shelters.  The funds that I raised went to Hiatus House.  Once again I have the opportunity to help.  This year our challenge is in Iceland and my goal is to raise at least $7,000.00.

 Welcome to my Iceland Challenge for Shelter fundraising page! Did you know: 

  • Half of all women in Canada over the age of 16 have experienced at least one incident of sexual or physical violence. 
  • Each year in Canada, an estimated 362,000 children witness family violence.
  • On average, every six days in Canada a woman is murdered by her intimate partner.

These are shocking statistics. I'm going to do something to help.  In July 2017, I will be trekking nearly 100 km across some of Iceland's most actively volcanic areas in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and raising funds to help women and children in Windsor & Essex County escape abuse and rebuild lives that are loving, safe and free from violence. 

For 6 straight days, my colleagues from Royal LePage offices across Canada and I will be crossing difficult terrain in unpredictable weather, sleeping in tents with only 2-3 hours of darkness each night, dealing with jet lag, and going without electricity, cell service and the other comforts of home. To be eligible to participate, we each must raise at least $5,000 in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. This journey will not be easy. I will be preparing physically and mentally for months and will be covering my own travel costs. Each dollar we raise and every step we take will make it easier for women and children to walk safely away from violence. 

Please click the SPONSOR ME link near the bottom of this page to help me reach my fundraising goal. Thank you for your support! Please note: The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation issues tax receipts in February for all donations of $20 or more made in the previous calendar year.
