My Message

Back in 2018 I started the journey towards a life of recovery. I wasn't sure what that would entail, I just knew I didn't want to live the way I had been. 

Little did I know, volunteering and community involvement would be the part of my addiction recovery that brings the most gratitude to my life. 

This year, I'm fundraising in the Ride for Refuge to call attention to some people and priorities that I feel really strongly about, like Restoring Hope. This ministry is something that I am passionate about, and their message is clear - to love your neighbour. Without condition. 

Restoring Hope has been a fundamental part of my ongoing growth, knowing that in my youth I had used services like this before I found recovery. 

To put my gratitude into action, I will be walking 26km from the Ottawa Withdrawal Management Centre on Montreal Road to Jericho Road's Discipleship House in Carlington and back. Just days before I got clean, this was the route that I took on an infected foot from injecting with dirty water, in January. I will always remember this walk as the one that kickstarted my recovery, for from it came a trip to the hospital and that enabled me to enter into detox and then rehab. 

After finding recovery, I have found the ability to share what I have learned and be present for others, giving back what was so freely given to me - even if that is just an ear at the Restoring Hope drop-in. 

And although it only takes a few hours of my time, I know it will make a difference. By participating in the RIDE, I'm speaking for people who have little or no voice and who often get left behind or ignored. And by fundraising, I'm supporting a charity who is bringing hope and refuge to those same people. Thanks for supporting me! #ride21
