She is on staff at Fred Victor as a housing worker. She finds places to live for people who are homeless. She’s a perfect person for the job because she has so many housing connections and totally understands what it’s like to be homeless. She’s passionate, compassionate and tough. And, she’s an excellent fundraiser, too.
Here’s how she describes her motivation to do the 5k Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon this year. “First off, I was always involved in walks, but because I was homeless for years, I stopped being involved in this sort of thing. I wanted to get back into it. Also, I want to be involved in anything that Fred Victor’s doing because I believe that what we’re doing is huge.”
“My goal is $1,000 and I’m just at $700 so I need to get my rear in gear and get the rest. I want to get people to really see that they can do so much more than they’re doing. Can you imagine if every person just gave one little sum of money?”
