Three girls from the Troupe guide de l'Île-Bizard aged between 16 and 17 will undertake a physical challenge on August 8 and 9! Accompanied by two animators, the girls will walk 58km of the Aerobic Corridor of the Laurentians between the towns of Morin-Heights and Amherst.
The funds raised will be donated to Ricochet (Hébergement/Homes), the first accommodation resource on the West Island of Montreal for young people experiencing homelessness.
Since 2010, workers from Action Jeunesse de l'Ouest-de-l'Île (AJOI) have been highlighting and documenting the hidden homelessness problem that affects young people in the West Island. There are currently no accommodation resources for young people living in a situation of residential instability or at risk of experiencing one in the entire West Island sector. Ricochet wishes to meet this need!
Encourage the scouts and therefore the young people of the West Island community by donating to this campaign by August 31, 2020! On behalf of the AJOI and Ricochet team, we thank you for your support, essential to make homelessness and residential instability among our young people a thing of the past.
A huge thank you to the Troupe guide de l'Île-Bizard for this initiative and we wish them lots of fun and success in their physical challenge!
