Why I became a member of the 100+ Women Northumberland
I think it was in 2016, when I first learned about 100 Women with Heart. My husband had read about it, and told me that they were meeting at the Mill.
When we lived in Toronto, I was involved, as much as I could, with grassroot charities and community service providers. Although I kept my base in Toronto [and continue having my office in Toronto], something was missing in my life living in Cobourg.
I had held fundraising events in 2013 in Cobourg for Dress for the Cause prior to joining the wonderful 100+ Women with Heart. However, as proud as I am about my involvement, fundraising, and raising awareness about breast cancer, the grassroot community involvement I wanted to have within my new hometown was missing. 100+ Women provided me with the opportunity to be involved and try to do something good in my backyard, so to speak.
So, I attended at the meeting and I was hooked. What a noble cause and what a wonderful group of human beings to work with. I wear my membership badge with pride and great honour.
Thank you, Christine Roth
