White Rock, B.C. – For the first time, seven real estate brokerages in the South Surrey/White Rock area came together to support the Hike for Hospice. They raised an impressive $7,500 for the Peace Arch Hospice Society, which offers community outreach and counselling for patients and their families. The 16th annual Hike for Hospice took place on Sunday, May 6 at Crescent Beach in White Rock. Participants enjoyed a 5 km beachfront walk, food, face painting, prizes and gifts from the REALTORS®.
“We want to raise awareness for this incredible local service, the Peach Arch Hospice Society,” says Edie Takahashi, who organized her industry’s presence at the fundraiser. “We had several brokerages coming together under the banner of REALTORS CARE for our community!”
The sales associates greeted participants and handed out more than 200 “REALTORS CARE” goody bags.
“We had Sutton Group – West Coast Realty (White Rock), Sutton - Premier Realty, Homelife Benchmark Realty, Bay Realty, RE/MAX Colonial Realty, Hugh McKinnon Realty and Macdonald Realty representing our local real estate community.”
Edie is pleased to report that the sponsorships and donations from the brokerages totalled approximately $7,500 including $4,500 contributed by her office, Sutton Group – West Coast Realty (White Rock).
Representatives for Sutton included Terry Hermann Wong, Kristina Eng, Aaron Muller, Evon Mayer, Linda Wei, Sharon Greysen, Michelle Anderson, Jessica Ni, Edie Takahashi, and Rob Christensen (Sutton - Premier Realty), along with a few family and friends.
“Our team walked and blinged up our hats and shirts in memory of Lin Sawicki, a colleague we lost earlier this year to cancer.”
