Chloe is running for BWSS

Originally from Toronto, Chloe has been an avid runner and engaged philanthropist for years. Encouraged by her mother into running, being active and outdoors is something fun that Chloe and her mother do together.

Chloe takes the opportunity to run while raising funds for local charities.

She is spending the summer in Vancouver and this year for Scotiabank Half Marathon & 5K, Chloe signed up to run before choosing a charity. Later, while looking for a local women’s group to donate to, she found BWSS online and discovered BWSS was a featured charity for Scotiabank 2016. After a careful review of BWSS website, Chloe found the site very informative and noticed that BWSS works with all women, providing specialized services for Immigrant and Refugee women and culturally relevant support for Indigenous women.

Chloe then set off raising funds for BWSS. She set a fundraising goal and through the support of her community she has surpassed her original goal.

As a philanthropist, Chloe believes in the act of giving and loves to give back to community.

She really appreciates organized runs like Scotiabank Half Marathon & 5K as a great way to bring people together and a great way to meet people.

On June 26th, Chloe will run a half marathon, that’s 21K. No stranger to challenges, Chloe is turning this year’s run into a pursuit of possibility that violence against women can be prevent.

Thank you Chloe for inspiring all of us with your commitment to being active, outdoors and to making a real difference in community.
