Shore Clean Up

Sometimes making a difference means pitching in and picking up some trash.

As Greater Vancouver’s proudly independent brokerage, we consider it our pleasure to do our part for our beautiful city. And we’re happy to put a sunny Saturday where our mouth is!

On May 11th a group of thirty Dexter agents and friends—along with two good samaritans, who saw our posts and came to join the cause—took to the shores of Spanish Banks. We were armed goodwill, and an insatiable desire to clean up one of Vancouver’s most beautiful public beaches. Happily, the City of Vancouver had also supplied us with the tongs for garbage pick up, garbage bags and sheets to record what we’d collected. Stand-out items from the day include a dog crate and kitchen countertop (though, curiously, not the sink).



By the end of the day we’d collected  twenty-two bags of garbage!

We had a lot of people thanking us for our efforts, and we couldn’t be happier to have improved their space and their day at the beach. Along with thanking everyone who helped out, we would particularly like to thank Brooke Alexander for coming up with the idea for this event and Nick Moroso and Brooke for their organizational efforts.

We will be looking to do this again soon—just at a different location. So stay tuned for the next Dexter Shore Clean Up!

Ride to Survive 2019

Why President David Peerless is putting his pedals to the metal to conquer cancer, and how you can help.

At Dexter Realty, we’ve got a long history of supporting our communities and our agents, working to do our part to improve everyone’s lives. And our Managing Brokers are always ready to lead the charge.

President David Peerless is especially committed to raising funds for cancer research and encouraging people to get on a bike (for the obvious health benefits).

The Ride 2 Survive fits both those goals perfectly.

 

This year David is participating for the third time. It’s simple. He wants to raise funds to invest in cancer research. Having lost too many loved ones to the disease, taking part in fundraising initiatives is how he knows we’re making a difference for those who are fighting to survive—and to remember those who have succumbed.

So what does it mean to Ride 2 Survive?

The facts:

    • Participants ride from Kelowna to Delta—which includes climbing an incline of 12,000 feet—all in one day!
    • 100% of the funds are donated! (Riders and volunteers pay for the event costs on their own, so no administration fees are deducted from funds raised).
    • The grueling one-day ride is meant to reflect on a single day in the life of a cancer patient undergoing treatment—that’s why it’s really, really hard.
    • Participants are either cancer survivors, or deeply affected by those around them currently facing the fight of their lives.
    • Riding starts in Kelowna at 3:30AM on June 22nd 2019 and ends at our destination in Delta that same day around 11:00PM. (Last year it took 20 hours in very windy conditions).
 

David and his fellow riders do this approximately 20 hour, one-day ride because it can make a difference.

We hope you’ll support David’s ride and donate to the Canadian Cancer Society’s ongoing research efforts. To contribute, please go here: http://convio.cancer.ca/goto/DavidP
