Chilliwack charity to benefit from 100 hikes in 100 days

Realtor Kyle Hislop of Chilliwack is about to wrap up 100 hikes in 100 days for ADTS

Kyle Hislop of Chilliwack is about to wrap up 100 hikes in 100 days on Teapot Hill to help support the Ann Davis Transition Society.

It’s a special fundraiser to help “put abuse out of commission,” he said.

“I wanted to do something memorable that would be worthy of people’s donations.”

Hiking Teapot 100 times was a unique way for the local realtor to celebrate and participate in Royal Lepage’s 100th anniversary through the Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation.

“Because this is a national event, I wanted something that would showcase the most beautiful place in the world, and nothing is more amazing than our mountains.”

An avid Chilliwack hiker, Hislop started doing Teapot Hill in early July and is set to wrap up the 100 completed hikes in 100 days with the finale, next week on Oct. 9.

It takes him about 40 minutes to climb from the trailhead to the summit, and in order to do all 100 hikes he’s had to do the distance four times in one go on more than one occasion.

“That takes me about three hours,” he said.

All the extra hiking has seen him drop 10 lbs and increase his energy level and his fitness.

He’s happy the donations have been trickling in.

“I’ve reached my goal of $1000,” he said, “and I am so pleased by the support.”

But he’s still hoping for an even more impressive total by next week.

Ann Davis has been Royal Lepage’s main local charity, and the fundraiser has allowed him to heighten awareness about Canadian women and children who have experienced domestic violence and are living in shelters.

“We’re so grateful for the 100 Hikes effort that Kyle has undertaken,” said ADTS board chair Kathy Clement. “Ann Davis is extremely proud to be the charity of choice for this fantastic endeavour.”

Anyone is still welcome to make a tax deductible donation to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, until Oct. 9, and 100% of the funds will go toward supporting women and children at the ADTS Transition House.

“It will be a challenge, but each step will remind me of the challenges faced each day by women and children living with abuse,” he wrote at the outset on his website. “Will you join me in my campaign to put abuse out of commission?”

They’ll issue tax receipts in February 2014.
