Congratulations, you are now signed up for 'Iron Legs for Charity'

We have created this page to help you with your fundraising. Please take a few minutes to complete a couple of details below, you will need to add a fundraising target to give you something to aim for (aim high!) and write a little bit about yourself to encourage people to help you reach that target. If you want to do this event as a team or in memory of a loved one you can set that up below as well.

Welcome to Leigha Stankewich's PCP
This event is a dream come true for me! I am so excited to host the inaugural event, Iron Legs for Charity! I believe that skiing & snowboarding, and being outside for that matter, really can help alleviate any suffering. Mental Health has always been important in my life. I've seen friends & family suffer with many different forms of illnesses. Back in 2008, I started raising funds for the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta, and at that time, mental illness was something that no one wanted to talk about, or were scared to. I'm so excited to see that now, people have opened up about it, and it's a genuine concern for most people. Talking about it, doing something enjoyable in the outdoors, all can help relieve stress, anxiety, depression, and more. These funds raised will help run programs for those who need help. Although I'm not able to participate (because I'm on the clock) I am quite proud to host this event at the Lake Louise Ski Resort!

This Page is 10th out of the 17 fundraisers taking part in event.
