Help Joanne raise money

My Story…

My dream is to live in a world where women and girls are free to live their dreams

Crossroads International supports women and girls in this very mission; through actively working in partnership with Canadians and African civil society organizations (CSOs), Crossroads is moving the needle on the necessary work to advance the rights of women's and girls' in the global south. 

This October, I will be running 10km the efforts to raise $5,000 to support the continued work of Crossroads' and its partners to further this vision. 

I invite you to be a part of the Crossroader movement by making financial contribution today.


"Together, we can do great things" - Mother Teresa 

With gratitude, love and light,
