In our current times that have restricted fundraising activities and events, the Durham Region Women have found an amazing opportunity in the community with Rita’s Bravehearts!
Rita is an incredibly special individual that has provided years of support to cancer centers, having experienced her own battle several years ago. When Rita became connected to the Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre it was the beginning of a lifelong relationship.
Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre, located in Oshawa is a support centre where cancer patients and their families can come and share their experiences, find resources, and discover new ways to care for themselves and each other. The Centre provided invaluable support and education for exactly what Rita would be experiencing in her own cancer journey, and it put her on a full-time mission to provide her own personal support to the expansion centre, Hearth Place Cancer Support Center for Pediatrics. Rita has raised thousands of dollars every year to help take away the fear and anxiety of children and their families experiencing cancer.
The Durham Region Women have been so fortunate to connect with Rita and have supported a few of her wonderful children’s events and fundraising activities. Rita’s Braveheart’s is doing a raffle for Pediatric Cancer that will be live-streamed October 23rd at 7pm on Facebook (Rita’s Braveheart’s Adventure Road trip). Tickets are 1 for $10, 3 for $25 with all prizes over $100! Top prize is an incredible getaway for 10 at the Hidden Gem Lakehouse in Buckhorn, Ontario for a value of $1500!
The Durham Region Women are supporting Rita’s raffle by purchasing tickets for her event and communicating to our Fellow Progressians for the opportunity to purchase tickets as well by going to firstname.lastname@example.org .

Good luck to the winner and on behalf of the Durham Region Women, we thank you for your support!
