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. I am fully covering all my travel and trekking expenses so 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. When I participated in the Purcell Mountains Challenge in 2021, I was able to raise over $8,000 that went directly to The Redwood, our local women's shelter and just over $2,000 to the national Royal LePage Shelter foundation. I hope to achieve this same goal (or more!)


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