The day before yesterday, I walked around Stanley Park for five hours, and then climbed Grouse Mountain in Vancouver. Why would I do such a thing, you may ask. (Trust me, that night I was asking the same question!)
The reason is, I am training. Or trying to, at least. In in 3 weeks I am climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. And I have to get ready!!
I am incredibly fortunate and excited to be documenting a trip at the end of September being taken by a Girl Impact team of 12 16-year-old girls from 5 Scarborough High Schools. Through this mentorship program, they have raised almost $50,000 to send 10 Kenyan girls through highschool. As the fitness component of their program, they will be climbing Mt. Kili. Isn’t that cool? Have a look at the lil trailer:
They are *almost* at the $50,000 mark. So, until we leave, we are fundraising like crazy. On Sunday Sept 13, we are having a Spin-a-thon. I have promised to bring a Documentographer Team. Will you be on it with me?
Don’t worry if you are fit or not. I have only done Spinning once, and fell off my bike. However, we will have fun!!!
It’s $40 each or $100 for a team of 4, and you sign up here: http://www.girlimpact.org/gi_spin It’s from 2-6pm at the Goodlife at Davisville. Just sign up, and shoot me an e-mail to let me know how awesome you are.
If you are inspired by this story or this mission at all, your time on Sunday would help us get another $4,000!!
Please come and be on the Documentographer team!
ps — Here are a couple pics from my journey in the park.
