A Shelter Full of Hope and Promise

WAG’s first Charity Challenge was a great success!

What an amazing first year for WAG’s new summer fundraiser – the Charity Challenge! Our rain dancing worked, and with Saturday came grey skies and a lot less smoke, allowing us to run our Charity Challenge Mini portion of the event: An approximate 1 km walk from the Passive House starting line to the event space in beautiful Lost Lake.

WAG and our fantastic supporters were able to raise a total of $2459.76 for our special animals – we are extremely grateful and delighted that our first year was such a success.
