Hi everyone, My name is Lily and my dog Dandelion and I are participating in the October Victoria Goddess Run—the Harvest Moon. We are excited to be Charity Champions for Victoria Women’s Transition House and hope that we can raise lots of funds to support the shelter and other Transition House programs for women and children.
Dandy is my best pal. She’s a rescue dog from California and came to me four years ago. She’s a sweet little dog and we love our walks through Cook Street Village, where I live and work, along Dallas Road and through Beacon Hill Park. We enjoy the beach, the patio restaurants in our neighbourhood and visiting all our two and four legged friends.
For the Harvest Moon Run, Dandelion and I will be dressing up in fabulous costumes, TBC (to be created!) For people that know me, they know I love to dress up! We will start and end our 5km from the Paws On Cook pet store in Fairfield. I’m not sure if Dandelion and I will be walking or running—maybe a combination of both. Watch for us on Saturday, October 30th.
Although I have no direct experience with Victoria Women's Transition House, I am compassionate towards the women who get support there. My journey is different but similar and I know the importance of a supportive community with resources that can really help a woman move forward in her life. It’s so important that we have these in our community, free and available for those who need help.
