Hi everybody, welcome to our donation page!
We are Karine and Nancy and we are biking across Canada this summer, while following COVID restrictions and guidelines, to raise money and awareness for a cause that is important to us. We met at the University of Ottawa while studying biology and realized we shared many similar passions.
Karine is an intermediate and senior teacher in Ottawa and Nancy just finished her first year as a medical student at the University of Ottawa. Nancy is from northern Ontario and has seen the major gap in available health services for indigenous communities for many years.
As for Karine, a recent graduate from the education program at the University of Ottawa and a new teacher, bringing awareness and education surrounding systemic inequality for indigenous communities has become even more important. Therefore, we chose to donate to this organization with 50% of the donations going towards the healthcare funds and 50% towards the education funds.
The healthcare initiative supports a variety of projects like providing wheelchairs and orthotics, whereas the education projects provide materials like backpacks and other school supplies to communities in need.
Our personal goal is to raise $5000 but any donation can help!
