The picture to the right was taken in 2011, just before the first of many 'training' runs I would complete over the next six years (some solo and some side-by-side or kilometers behind the incredible folks pictured here and many others not pictured). These training sessions were in preparation for fundraising runs in benefit of the Women's Centre of Calgary and the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre in Vancouver.
As in past years, I'm running and fundraising for the DTES Women's Centre because the work they do is extremely important. Until we live in a world free of systemic oppression based on gender, ethnicity, sexuality, ability, income and wealth, etc., it is important to continue supporting the groups, non-profits and organizations that are working to alter and eradicate these systems.
If you are able, please consider making a donation to the DTES Women's Centre.
