On September 11, 2001, a tragic event occurred that altered life as we know it forever. That event personally changed my life. I lost my best friend of 30 years that day and the world lost an amazing, kind-hearted and generous human being.
Debbie was one of the 24 Canadians who perished during the attacks on the World Trade Center. In my quest to honor those lost on that fateful day and to support the lives saved through the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, I ran the half-marathon in the Oasis de Montreal, on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, and raised $12,000 for this great cause.
I know if she were with us today, Debbie would have been running alongside me and I am so grateful for your support in achieving my goal.
You helped me salute the courage of the 30,000 women and children who stay in the shelters we support each year.
Together, let's put abuse out of commission.
