Our Girls Rawk

This weekend “The Rack n’ Rollers”, which consisted of staff, customers, and friends of The Girls ran in a relay to support the Portage Atlantic "Recovery Trail" Project. Portage is a Youth Addiction Centre in New Brunswick. It's an amazing facility which has made an incredible difference in the lives of youth from the Kennebecasis Valley.

The fundraising of this remarkable team included a clothing swap attended by over 30 women, raffle ticket sales on two bras from the store, cash donations, company donations, and they sold water, gatorade and fresh fruit the day of the event.
In total the Rack n’ Rollers raised over $1500.00 and came in 2nd place!!

From the clothes that remained following the clothing swap, over 20 bags were donated to two different organizations: Saint John Clothing Bank and Canadian Diabetes Association.

Thanks to all who participated!
