This is my 4th year running for Across, my 2nd year joining the virtual marathon. It has been a humbling experience running in joining the Toronto Marathon, everyone is running for a good cause and I chose to run for an organization that is dear to my heart - Across U-hub.
Across has nurtured me to who I am today. During my early days in Canada as a teenager, Across helped me build a sense of belonging to Toronto, a city that I now called my home. Many times when I needed to my critical life choices like university major, career changes, I was supported by the mentors and peers in this community. I am who I am today because this organization believes in youth and in finding the potential in every individual.
I am now a wife and mother of 2, juggling between my career and family life. During the past 20 months of pandemic, I would have days when I have self-doubt or when life felt overwhelming and I'd find myself chatting with the same life mentors that I met here, seeking for words of affirmation or positive vibes.
It's been a tough year for many and especially for non-profit organizations. This non-profit organization needs our financial support for its existence. I sincerely invite you to become an enabler of this ministry, so that the work to build a better next generation can be continued.
Please donate to support this organization. Thank you so much for your support!!
