I am thrilled to have received recognition from my office and colleagues for my Real Estate Business in 2012.
My highest honour, however, was in recently receiving the 2012 Pay it Forward Award from my RE/MAX results realty office. This award is given to one person annually in recognition of their commitment to the community through volunteerism and charitable works during 2012.
I've been really lucky and I think it's important for us to remember those folks who are struggling in their own lives. I think most of my clients are aware that a portion of each sale is donated to BC Children's hospital. The total donated in 2012 on my clients behalf was $2400.00.
On another front, I have several friends who have taught me incredible strength in the past few years by watching them go through their battles with Cancer. For that reason, I am also a strong believer in the Terry Fox Legacy, the Cure for Cancer & our annual office Garage Sale for the Cure.
My greatest joy this past year was helping 360 Cycle in their efforts to collect Bikes 4 Kids. Again, I have to thank my clients for their help in coming forward with donations of their used bikes so that we could make a few kids really, really happy over the holidays. It was a great idea and I hope to be a part of it again this season.
On a personal note I've enjoyed the past 10 weeks helping with the River Springs Sun Run Clinic. I'm looking forward to the day (not too far away) when all our new runners will face the challenge of completing a 10k race for the very first time.
Thanks again everyone for all your support!
