Women Walking to Grow 100km Completed!
Women Walking to Grow started in 2017 as a joint initiative between Miriam Turnbull (ProResp) and Elaine Shantz (peopleCare); two female leaders who wanted to challenge themselves and others to grow beyond themselves and embrace leadership in their professional and personal lives.
This year’s trek raised funds for Nigeria - the WAY: Women's Empowerment And Youth Entrepreneurship. The WAY seeks to raise awareness of the social risks to women, young adults and children who are forced into marriage at an early age, and provide a WAY out through expanded business opportunities.
Joined by a team of GROW Heros, from July 18-22 Miriam and Elaine trekked 100 KM of the Bruce Trail. We congratulate all the Hero's - together they raised over $30,000 in support of women in Nigeria.
Check back in early 2019 for information on the 2019 trek.
