Welcome to our Purcell Mountains Challenge for Shelter fundraising page!

Women’s shelters in Canada need our support now more than ever to continue their life-saving and life-changing work. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to increases in the incidence and severity of domestic violence. Calls for help have skyrocketed while at the same time countless fundraising events in both 2020 and 2021 have been cancelled. While most of us are slowly preparing for a return to normalcy, we cannot forget that there isn’t a vaccine for domestic violence. 

We plan to help and we hope you will join us in making a difference!

In August 2021*, we will be trekking in British Columbia’s Northern Purcell Mountains in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Over the course of 6 days, we will be hiking across some of Canada’s most majestic terrain. While the scenery will be incredible, the hiking will not be easy as we’ll be carrying all our gear and camping supplies on our backs. We will be tent-camping and going without bathroom facilities, electricity, cell service and other comforts of home. To be eligible to participate, we each must raise at least $5,000 and cover our own travel costs. Each dollar we raise and every step we take will make it easier for women and children in our community to walk safely away from violence.
Please click the SPONSOR OUR TEAM link near the bottom of this page to help us reach our 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.

*While we know difficult days are still ahead, our trek organizers feel that given the trajectory of Canada’s COVID-19 recovery, we will be able to gather safely for small-group hiking in Canada this summer. In doing so, we hope to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for this important cause. We will monitor COVID-19 developments closely and adhere to all provincial and federal laws and travel advisories. Fundraising for our local women's shelters is our primary goal; we will only hike if it is safe to do so.
