We’re kicking off the giving season with a bold goal as the challenges we face continue to grow.

Unlock the full potential of the match by helping us reach our goal of $150,000.

Every dollar donated will be matched by our generous sponsor, Scotiabank—doubling the impact of your gift.

Together, we can make our region a strong, healthy and safe place for everyone.
