8 Hours

8 Moves

This event is in support of Shelter Movers but is not officially organized or sanctioned by them. All donations are made directly to Shelter Movers Vancouver but they hold no responsibility or liability for this event. It's my own silly idea.

 
 

ABOUT ME

My name is Peter Celler.
I'm a father of three, a mechanical engineer, and I enjoy doing endurance sports.
I discovered my love for endurance sport in 2014 and have been looking for new challenges ever since.
With this event I hope to give my hobby some meaning and do some good.

ABOUT
SHELTER MOVERS

Founded in April 2016 by Marc Hull-Jacquin, Shelter Movers is a a survivor-centred, free moving service that has been able to help nearly 1,000 households safely relocate without losing treasured belongings.

Since then, they've expanded their services to Ottawa, Vancouver and Nova Scotia building a team of more than 500 determined volunteers. These volunteers are the driving force behind the organization.

There’s plenty of people in difficult situations who are in need of support. The need to raise awareness on the issues of violence against women and domestic violence is great. Simply put, there’s a lot to be done.

At their core, they aim to remind survivors of their intrinsic worth and the power they are reclaiming in their decision to leave an abusive relationship. 
At the end of the day, their story is made up of many stories, starting with those of survivors.

GOALS

8 HOURS

80 KMS

8 MOVES ($1600)

I appreciate any donation, no matter how big or small. Everything helps.

(All donations are made directly to Shelter Movers. I don't touch the money. All administrative costs and logistical cost are paid by me out of pocket, and all physical tolls are taken out of my own hide. So 100% of your donation goes to this worthy cause.)
I believe tax receipts are issued by CanadaHelps.org (the organisation that Shelter Movers uses to collect donations.

$20

$2.50 FOR EACH HOUR

I'll be running for 8 hours through the night. A donation of $2.50 for each hour run adds up to $20. For each ten donations of this type we raise enough to move one family to safety.

$80

$1 FOR EACH KILOMETER

I hope to complete 80 kilometers through the night. A donation of $1 for each kilometer adds up to $80 or almost half a move. This is one twentieth of the campaign goal.

$200

MOVE 1 FAMILY TO SAFETY

With this super generous goal you help move one woman or family out of a dangerous situation and to somewhere they can feel safe at home. It doesn't line up with anything in my run, but really, we all know this isn't about me.
