Another Year Has Come and Gone

Congratulations to all members of Women on the Move! Cannot believe it has come to an end. Feels as if it was only yesterday when we met these remarkable women! At the beginning of the program the women set personal goals for themselves. Over the past year, it has been wonderful to watch these women work hard to accomplish these goals. The women have also been active in their community by speaking about the issue of violence against women. We know they will continue to be amazing advocates.

A special thanks to our guest speaker, Amy, a former WOTM youth member. We are so grateful that she has stayed connected over the years! She also gave an inspiring speech at the graduation party.

Last but not least – we are filled with gratitude for the generous support we receive from The Lillian and Don Wright Foundation for the WOTM program. The Foundation’s passion and dedication to end violence against women is truly inspiring. Priscilla Wright and Mary Louise Dickson were both in attendance on Saturday for the celebration.

A special heartfelt thank you also goes to The Bras Family Foundation and we were delighted that Leah Lambrakis was in attendance this year.

Thank you for having me today at the WOTM ceremony. The smiles, positivity and pride felt from these women pulled at my heart. What a wonderful program and what awesome accomplishments!” – Leah
