Why did you choose to participate in this event?
In the course of my life, I have come to really appreciate the importance of a “plan B”. That’s the plan you need when something doesn’t go the way you want it to. When I learned of the great work STARS was doing in our province, I also learned they are a big part of most Manitoba’s Plan B, and we don’t even know it. We, or our loved ones, often venture outside the city for a host of reasons (to live, work, for adventure, for recreation, you name it) and we simply assume that we are safe. Without STARS and other related services, the truth is we don’t have a Plan B!
Why do you support STARS?
My family and I want all Manitobans to enjoy all that our province has to offer while feeling safe that if something untoward happens, we can feel confident help is quickly on the way.
What will be your indispensable piece of survival gear or good luck charm?
It’s Manitoba, and like every good Manitoban it will be my long underwear!
